HERE IS WHAT OTHER METS FANS HAVE TO SAY:

The first time I saw the Mets live was July 7, 1962. It was a doubleheader and Sammy Taylor homered in each game. He hit a total of three all year. And when was the last time you heard of a catcher playing both games of a twin-bill?

Sammy had a great 1963 Topps card that features a television camera in the background. He also shows a lot of catcher's mitt as well. I was born in 1963, so I can't really say I saw him play. The card is the closest I got.

Sammy Taylor is my uncle. He is a wonderful man. I was born in 1956. I was able to see him play but was to young to remember!

I met Sammy in Hawaii. He played on a Navy baseball team and he, along with his teammates, came to my parent's house for fried chicken after the games. He and his wife Polly visited us in San Diego when his pro team played here. The running joke was that he looked just like Paul Newman (he did). I have special memories of a nice guy who, when I was a 10-year-old girl, was the object of my crush. I hope he and his family are well.

I met Sammy Taylor around 1961 or 1962. He was with the Cubs back then and was in Los Angeles to play the Dodgers. I was told he was a relative of my uncle, Randy Granger. Sammy came to my school and presented my cousin and me two autographed baseballs signed by the Cubs. I still have the baseball. Besides Sammy's signature, Ernie Banks is easily recognized. I also remember going to Dodger Stadium to watch Sammy play and the thrill of watching a major leaguer that I personally knew.
