Mets’ pitcher with 1.000/1.000/3.000 career slash line debuted 15 years ago today

There is only one New York Mets player to retire with a slash line of 1.000/1.000/3.000, and he made his major league debut 15 years ago today.

Eric Cammack, a right-handed pitcher, made eight relief appearances for the 2000 Mets, posting an 0-0 record with a 6.30 ERA.

On July 5 of the 2000 season, Cammack pitched the final two innings of the Mets’ rout of the Florida Marlins at Pro Player Stadium. He got his lone career at-bat in the ninth inning of that contest just after Benny Agbayani hit a one-out triple. Cammack tripled to left, driving in Agbayani for the Mets’ 11th run. He was stranded at third after pinch-hitter David Lamb struck out and Derek Bell flied to center.

Cammack appeared in three more games for the Mets but never again stepped up to the plate. He later signed as a free agent with the Houston Astros and Oakland Athletics but never made it back to the bigs, so his 1.000 average, 1.000 on-base percentage and 3.000 slugging percentage remain in tact.
