Curtis Granderson was a fan-favorite wherever he went, and Flushing was no different. In Dec. 2013, Granderson signed a four-year, $60 million deal with the Mets.
Granderson grew to become a dangerous leadoff hitter for the Mets that pitchers did not want to face. In 205 games from May 15, 2013, to Sept. 16, 2014, Granderson didn’t ground into a double play, a record that still stands today.
Granderson accomplished the feat of hitting his 300th career home run while with the Mets in 2017. Granderson also led the entire league in the number of pitches per plate appearance in 2014 and 2017.
Granderson even had a memorable postseason run with the Mets in 2015, when he was one of the team’s most lethal hitters. In Game 3 of the NLDS, Granderson recorded five RBI, tying the franchise record of most RBI in a single postseason game. While the Mets lost the World Series to the Kansas City Royals, Granderson did hit three home runs and recorded five RBI.
The Mets traded Granderson to the Los Angeles Dodgers in Aug. 2017 when he made history that week by becoming the first player ever to hit grand slams for two different teams in the same week.
In 2014, 2015, and 2016, Granderson led the Mets in games and walks. In 2015 and 2016, he led the team in at-bats and runs. In 2015, he led the team in hits, singles, stolen bases, on-base percentage, and total bases. In 2016, he led the Mets in triples and hit by pitch.
