He arrived at Shea fairly late in his career. He hit .284 over 46 games. He was acquired by the Mets in a mid-season trade with the Chicago White Sox. I remember him as being a reliable hitter but in researching, I see that he is more widely remembered for not coming through in the clutch when a long flyball he hit to right field was caught for a rally-ending final out in the bottom of the eighth inning. In his one year with the team, he hit 1 HR and knocked in 11 RBIs; he even stole a base. He had two brothers who also played in the major leagues and one of them played his one and only major league game against the New York Mets, going 3-for-3 with 3 RBIs and 4 runs scored.
