As usual, the readership came through solving a Met Mystery with speed and precision. The Met wearing No. 64 pictured in the below post and here on the left was and is Luis Natera, a current Binghamton Mets coach and a former Mets DSL manager who earned the coaching version of a September callup this year while looking over former pupils such as Dan Murphy and Nick Evans.
As detailed in the comments below, reader C.M. even provided a link explaining the circumstances while perennial MBTN All-Star Jason provided Natera’s page in the Media guide, adding some baseball to the first non-baseball day of our winter.
