On September 26, 2012 — David Wright, the franchise leader in doubles, extra-base hits, walks, RBIs, and runs scored, breaks the record for the most hits in Met history when he beats out a slow grounder down the third base line for an infield single in the team’s 6-0 victory over Pittsburgh at Citi Field. The 29 year-old third baseman’s 1,419th career hit surpasses Ed Kranepool, a first baseman and outfielder who played for New York from 1962-1979.
