"I'm over Strawberry . I'm over Mets . I'm over Yankees . I don't want to exist as Darryl Strawberry , the baseball player. People don't understand that's no longer you. I'm not a baseball player, anymore. That person is dead." - Darryl Strawberry in USA Today (Bob Nightengale, 07/11/2013, Pastor Strawberry says true calling ahead, not baseball , Full Story )

baseball almanac fast facts

Did you know that are four managers who were skippers with the Mets and Yankees ? They are Yogi Berra , Dallas Green , Casey Stengel , Joe Torre .

There have been more than a dozen major leaguers who not only played for both New York teams, but actually suited-up for both the Mets and Yankees during the same identical season!

When Marv Throneberry took the field on May 11, 1962 , he became the first player to ever wear both current New York uniforms . Just a few weeks later, on June 17, 1962 , a second played joined him in this "club" / on that roster. Who was it? [ Answer ]
