Mets sign Joe McEwing
tickets for any Major League Baseball game
Joe McEwing, who was eligible for salary arbitration, today signed a two-year contract with the New York Mets for the 2004 and 2005 seasons. McEwing, who played seven different positions for the Mets last year, is guaranteed one millions dollars for the two years.

"Joe can help you in so many different ways, " said Mets General Manager Jim Duquette. "His versatility allows Art to have many different options throughout a game."

Last season, the 5-11, 210 pound utility man appeared in five games at first base, 55 games at second base (42 starts), two games at third base (one start), 42 games at shortstop (24 starts), 16 games in left field (four starts), one game in center field (one start) and two games in right field.

"I'm excited about staying in New York and continuing to be a part of the Mets organization," said McEwing. "I am looking forward to being able to help the team be successful in anyway I possibly can."

The 31-year old McEwing played in 119 games last year, batting .241 (67-278) with 31 runs, 11 doubles, one home run, 16 RBI and three stolen bases. Over four seasons with the New York Mets, Joe has played in 416 games, hitting .242 (220-910) and has played every position on the field with the exception of pitcher and catcher.
