Three-time All-Star Curtis Granderson officially traded in his Bronx pinstripes for the blue and orange of Queens.
Granderson and the Mets recently came to 4-year, $60 million agreement. He was introduced officially on Tuesday.
The outfielder played for the Yankees for the last three years.
He hit over 40 home runs in each of his first two seasons there, but missed most of last season with injuries.
"I'm looking forward to getting out there and just 1) playing defense, 2)hitting the baseball, seeing where it's gonna bounce around, getting a chance to run and seeing some great fans come out there. A lot of the people I've met in New York have always said that true New Yorkers are Mets fans so I'm excited to get a chance to see them all out there,” Granderson said at the press conference.
He also said he's glad to remain in New York because he has a children's charity foundation here.
