Do the Mets actually have a problem getting hit by so many pitches?

The New York Mets set the MLB record for most pitches in a single season.

Earlier in the week, the New York Mets secured their first postseason spot since 2016 after beating the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday. In exactly this game, Max Scherzer celebrated his 200th career win. The story continued just this week against the Milwaukee Brewers.

During the team’s September 21 game, Brewers pitcher Jake hit Cousins ​​infielder Luis Guillorme with a pitch that touched his left foot. This made the Mets 106th player to be hit by a pitch, the most for any team in a single season in modern times.

Mets manager Buck Showalter didn’t seem upset. In fact, he actually asked for the ball!

At a meeting with the media, Showalter was asked what he would do with the record ball, and he joked that “it would be obscene to tell you what I’m going to do with it.” Showalter then said that he gave the ball to his batting coaches.

You can listen to his comments in SNY’s tweet below:

The record was previously set by last year’s Cincinnati Reds, who hit 105 pitches. That was the modern record, also known since 1900. The all-time record belongs to the Baltimore Orioles of 1889who have been hit by pitches 160 times.

New York has been on track to break the record since the start of the season. In their opening series against the Washington Nationals, they were hit by pitches five times in the four-game set, which they did lead to the clearing of the benches in a game.

When it comes to who was hit by the most pitches in the 2022 Mets, it’s outfielder Mark Canha at 24.

The Mets broke a record. Now that that’s out of the way, they’ve been trying to win their Premier League title since 2015 as they look to break away from the Atlanta Braves. Do the Mets actually have a problem getting hit by so many pitches?
