In the 70s, Bud Harrelson was my favorite Met. I also played shortstop. My 8th grade yearbook caption (1977) was Softball’s Bud Harrelson. At the end of the season, I was MVP and received my trophy from Bud Harrelson who also signed my yearbook picture. pic.twitter.com/0kxnsYDKnM

John Franco. He was great too me when it was my time. And he was even better to my son and that to me is priceless, Johnny signed a ball for him, took a pic, signed it for him as well n even let him play either his dog Teddy. pic.twitter.com/mBoSpYDSAU

Mookie Wilson. At Tower Records to promote the Mets 1986 championship video. I handed him my Game 6 ticket stub to sign and his face just lit up like only Mookie can. Also met Jesse at the All-Star Fan Fest & Krane at the QBC. Did BP at Shea with Ed Charles at a sponsor event. pic.twitter.com/E3WxVc9uJG

Run to beat the Brewers. But long story short after the game he messaged us saying to meet him at his apartment in West Nyack. We drove there after the game and got to meet him and his girlfriend. Super nice guy, and miss him honestly. And I’ll send you the walkoff now. pic.twitter.com/RrZJMOJ9lZ

At Spring training in ’86 in St. Pete, dad and I caught Gary Carter posing alone for a card company shot at Huggins-Stengel Field (if you know …) without other fans around. He was more than happy to pose with me for this shot and treated me like royalty. pic.twitter.com/mMIJjU2ddV
