Cameron at-bat while with the Mets.

Mike Cameron (born January 8, 1973) played outfield for the Mets from 2004 to 2005.

In 2004 he signed a three year, $19.5 million dollar contract to play center field for the Mets. That year, 2004, he hit a career-high 30 home runs. With the acquisition by the Mets of Carlos Beltran before the 2005 season, Cameron surrendered his position to the star center fielder and played most of his games in right field during the 2005 season. On August 11, 2005, in San Diego, Cameron collided with Beltran in the outfield as both made diving attempts to catch a fly ball. Cameron suffered a concussion and multiple fractures of his nose and cheekbones, and was removed from the field on a stretcher.
