The Mets announced today that John Franco will be inducted in to the team’s Hall of Fame on June 3 before an afternoon game against the Cardinals.
Franco picked up 274 of his 424 saves in a Mets uniform and owns a 2.89 ERA over a 21 year major league career.
During a conference call today John Franco had this to say about the big news:
“I’m truly honored and humbled to be elected. Growing up rooting for the Mets it’s an honor and very special for a kid from Brooklyn. My dad is up in heaven looking down with a smile.”
Question: Does Franco have the credentials for Cooperstown?
