The Eddie Kranepool Society Congratulates David Wright on Becoming the NY Mets All-Time Hits Leader

I’m not going to lie, it was always cool to look at the section of the NY Mets media guide that houses the all-time Mets records and see Ed Kranepool’ name in the top spot as the Mets all-time hits leader. After last night though Steady Eddie has been relegated to the second all-time spot surpassed by David Wright and his squib single in the 3rd inning last night.

Kranepool has been coming to the games of this recent home stand to see Wright take his spot and according to Wright Eddie has been his biggest supporter:

  “Eddie came and saw me before the game, wished me luck, and reiterated the fact that he’s happy for me and excited for me, and that meant a lot to me,” Wright said. “I’m very proud and humbled at the same time.”

 So with that let offer my heartiest congratulations to David Wright on the occasion of earning the title the NY Mets All-Time Hits Leader.

GOING TO THE METS GAME JULY 10TH? YOU COULD BE PART OF HISTORY

What’s more NY than Wise Potato Chips right?  Wise are the official snack food of the Mets and on July 10th  every one attending the Mets-Reds game that night will be given a bag of Wise Potato Chips and an opportunity to set a Guinness World’s Record:

The crack of the bat will be supplanted at Citi Field July 10th by a louder, tastier sound as all fans attending that evening’s Mets-Reds game are invited to participate in the Big City Crunch, an attempt to set the Guinness World Record™  for most potato chips ever crunched at once.

            Every fan entering the Mets’ new ballpark for the 7:10 p.m. game will receive a .75-oz. bag of Wise Potato Chips, courtesy of Wise Snacks and the New York Mets.  At the designated time, fans will be instructed to open their individual package and, when given the go-ahead, take a big bite of a chip and CRUNCH.

Representatives of Guinness World Recordsâ„¢ will be on hand to record the occasion and, if all necessary criteria are met, shortly thereafter certify that a world record has been set.
