Our friends in Mets Media Relations Department were kind enough to send us a preview of the Rusty Staub bobble head which will be given away at this Saturdays 1:10 game against the San Diego Padres.
These soon to be family heirlooms ( for me at least) will be given away to the first 25,000 people to pass through the Citi Field gates.
And with that said… HERE COMES THE INFAMY !!!!!
Mets alumni celebrating a birthday today includes:
Spot starter/middle reliever from the ’64 season, Bill Wakefield is 71 (1941).
Middle reliever from the ’95-’96, Jerry Dipoto is 42(1968).
Mets starting pitcher from the ’02- seasons, Jae Seo is 35 (1977).
The New York Mets traded reliever, Jorge Julio to the Arizona Diamondbacks for rubber armed starter, Orlando “El Duque” Hernandez on May 24, 2006.
Mo Vaughn is fuming that the Mets haven’t honored him with his own bobble head – I guess the ” Mo Vaughn Memorial Port-O-Potties” by the Left Field parking lot wasn’t good enough !!!!
