With all this talk about the current state of the Mets SS position, sit back and enjoy this extended length video of Rey Ordonez. He might have driven us all crazy with his knack for swinging at high fastballs and his mid .200 batting average, but man was he special with his glove. Ordonez was the anchor of “The Best Infield Ever”, proclaimed by Sports Illustrated, and made defensive baseball must see TV.
Although his career lasted only 9 years, 7 of which were with the Mets, he was arguably one of the greatest defensive shortstops you will ever see.
The video isn’t exactly HD quality, but hey it was made in the 90’s, Enjoy!
