After missing the rest of the 2010 Season after a head concussion which occurred on July 25,2010 @ Los Angeles against the Los Angeles Dodgers. It became a season ending injury for Jason Bay in his first year as a Met. As the 2011 Season came around people thought he would be back in June to return to the team. But he recovered early as he came back on April 21,2011 to make his day view at Citi Field in the final game against the Houston Astros. The Mets won to a score of 9-1 as Chris Capuano got his second win of the year as his record became 2-1. His return sparked the Mets.
In the game against the Astros in the 8th inning Bay blooped a hit in right field and got an inside the park homerun as Hunter Pence dropped it and it rolled all the way back to the wall. Bay's first hit of the year and his first since July in his last appearance last year.
