The Mets’ 2022 season is all about nostalgia, starting with additions to spring training

The past becomes the present for the New York Mets this season.

Earlier this month, the club announced plans to hold their first alumni day in almost 30 years.

Some of those alumni will also join the Mets in spring training once MLB’s lockdown ends.

By SNY’s Andy Martino:

The Mets are waiting for Al Leiter as a spring training instructor. Leiter was an important part of Van Wagenen’s front office, didn’t do much for the team last year. Mookie Wilson is also a name to add to ST instructors. David Wright and Mike Piazza will also be at ST, IF THERE IS ONE UGH.
