The 50 Biggest Fails in New York Mets History

#12. Timo Perez Goes for a World Series Jog

Date: 10/21/2000

Thinking that Todd Zeile had hit a home run in Game 1 of the 2000 Subway Series, Timo Perez decided to jog his way around the bases without realizing that the ball never went over the fence. Perez—surprise, surprise, surprise—got thrown out at home, and the Mets lost a valuable run (and, eventually, the game and the Series). We all make mistakes, but when your lapse in judgment comes during one of the most important games of your life, all we can say is: Hello bad memories, meet the rest of your life!
