This ex-Mets pitcher appeared in exactly 162 games over an eight-year career. In fact, he appeared, disappeared, reappeared, disappeared and then reappeared again at the major league level. This might explain the pensive look on his face in this photograph.
Originally signed by the Detroit Tigers, he appeared in 11 games for the New York Mets, all in the same season. He got neither a win nor a loss but earned a 2.16 ERA in a little over 16 innings pitched. He even made an appearance in the 1969 post-season.
He was known more for his love of coffee and Lucky Strikes then he was for his palm ball. He never made an error at the major league level but once received a standing ovation for grounding out to third base.
