Posted on June 24, 2010 by


Here’s what happened on this day in New York Mets history:

1967: New York Mets traded Al Yates to the Boston Red Sox for Dennis Bennett.

2010: Celebrity website publishes a report claiming New York Mets pitcher Johan Santana was accused of sexual battery in Fort Myers, Fla. in October 2009. Police said the case was closed because of a lack of evidence. Santana read a statement addressing the situation saying:

“I will make a statement and hopefully, I will make myself clear. I’m aware of this situation. What I can tell you is that police had investigated these claims last year and I was never charged with anything and the case is closed. Unfortunately, at this time, that is all I can say.”
