Spring has sprung for Major League Baseball fans as the majority of the teams have packed up their trucks to make their way to Spring Training. On what was a gorgeous day in Queens, New York, the New York Mets was just one of those teams.
With staff and Mr. and Mrs. Met all buzzing around the truck, boxes and bags all found a nice spot in the truck, so that the team and the staff will be ready for the 2023 Season.
1495 Sports is proud to bring the following video look from the Equipment Truck Day:
There has been a ton of buzz surrounding the Mets, as news both official and unofficial has been announced by the franchise.
Most recently the team announced the singing of catcher Tomas Nido along with outfielder Tommy Pham to the roster.
Nido has been tremendous in aiding the Mets starters during the course of his career. During the 2022 season Tomas was a finalist for the Gold Glove Award, after manning the backstop for a career-high 96 games. In addition to being a tremendous defender, Nido has been able to record a .239 batting average, tallying 31 runs.
Pham, meanwhile, is a newcomer to the team, after splitting last season between the Cincinnati Reds and Boston Red Sox.

In addition, there are sources that are stating that the franchise also signed Jeff McNeil to a four-year $50 million dollar contract.
McNeil who won the 2022 NL batting title, will be starting at second base this season. For the Mets they were able to keep Jeff around, who is one of their homegrown core position players to a long-term contract.
There will be plenty to watch for during the upcoming season, as it will be fascinating to see how all the pieces of the team’s puzzle comes together. For now, though today is just step one of many for a team who hopes to Amaze the fans in Queens.
