    What is the significance of Ted Lepcio in Mets history?

  • #2
    So, too, is Ted Lepcio, the utilityman who was beat out of a roster spot by Hot Rod Kanehl. Lepcio never made the Mets but we shouldn’t forget the name of the first major league veteran to take a chance on the Mets. A few weeks after the expansion draft, Lepcio, a free agent, opted to sign with the new ballclub. He wasn’t drafted by the Mets. He wasn’t purchased by the Mets. He sought out the Mets.

      He was the first player to ever sign with the Mets. He signed before any of the players they picked in the expansion draft had signed.

        Yep. Not much of a player or career. Maybe he figured he'd catch on with them and extend his career a few years?
