David Wright's final days with the Mets

After 14 seasons, all with the Mets, third baseman and team captain David Wright will retire because of medical issues with his back. Follow along with Wright's final days in a Mets uniform as he set is to play his final game on Saturday, Sept. 29, 2018.

David Wright always will be considered Mr. Met, but it’s important to note, without the big head. He was a seven-time All-Star, often among the top 10 MVP candidates during his early years, and yet played with a Little Leaguer’s enthusiasm, as if he were trying every day just to make the team. His bubbly passion was infectious, his corner locker welcoming. And somehow, that never changed during a 14-year tenure in Flushing that contained some of the most turbulent, and embarrassing, times for the franchise. Written and narrated by David Lennon.
