How does a conversation like this even happen? A new book written by AJ Mass, the man who was Mr. Met from 1994-1997 said that in 1997 when then President Clinton came to Shea stadium to honor Jackie Robinson, the secret service threatened to kill him if anything went wrong. Apparently they became somewhat suspect of Mr.Met when his head couldn’t fit through a metal detector that was placed on the field. Mr. Met just wanted a photo with the Pres but it never happened. See what they said to him.
