Junk baller who was given up by 3 other teams before the expansion Mets picked him up. He was never able to perfect his junk.

See my post re Dave Hillman.

It was sad to see both of these guys on the least visited list on the 13th of the month. I was over Herb's home this summer as part of my quest for autographs of 1962 Mets. Very nice guy. His wife insisted I stay for lunch.

Herb and his family are my friends for many years. I just read Herb's obituary this morning. He passed away December 3, 2005. Herb Moford is in "the hall of fame of the hearts of anyone who knew him." What a wonderful man, husband, father, friend. He was so much more than just a statistic to the people of Mason and Bracken County Kentucky.

For all of you fans, Herb Moford died on December 3from complications of emphysema.

I am a baseball fan (Cincinnati Reds) but met Herb after his playing days. He was the perfect southern gentleman, soft-spoken and wouldn't ever hurt anyone. I will miss him as a friend.

I had never heard of Herb Moford until his passing. As a Bills fan in addition to being a Mets, I found out that Moford was one of only a few to play for the Rochester Red Wings during both their St. Louis years and their Baltimore years. Moford's 15-13 1961 season (with a 3.16 ERA) impressed Casey Stengel enough for the Old Perfessor to invite him to play for the expansion Mets. According to Rochester columnist Bob Matthews, Moford "had the distinction of being the only pitcher not to allow a run in the team's first-ever game, working one shutout inning in an 11-3 loss to St. Louis." Unfortunately, that was the highpoint of Moford's stint with the Mets, and he was sent back to Rochester.

Very interesting to me as a Mets fan who has attended a number of Red Wings games over the years, both at historic (and deceased) Silver Stadium and at beautiful new Frontier Field. The Rochester Red Wings is among the oldest and greatest minor league franchises.
