Ken was the manager of  the Mets' AAA affiliate in three different cities, but before that was a starting infielder in the big leagues for most of a decade.  A heralded minor-league manager, he joined the big-league coaching staff midway through the 2008 season. After 2008 he returned to the Mets' minor-league system, and then came back to the big-league team for one more year in 2011. He's shown here as the manager of the Norfolk Tides on 2006 Choice; some cards from his playing days are shown below.
