Tracy Stallard was one of the unfortunate young pitchers on the Mets early teams. He is most famous for making the pitch that became Roger Maris' 61st home run.

From what I've read, Stallard reportedly had a reputation as a playboy. He is said to have dated Julie "Catwoman" Newmar. I, too, would have trouble with my concentration on the mound if I was dating Julie Newmar!

Great quote by Stallard about Roger Craig, when hard-luck Roger was pitching and losing 18 games in a row for the 1963 Mets, "If (Craig) bought a graveyard, nobody would die." (from "The Amazing Mets" - Jerry Mitchell)

In one of those books about the lousy Mets teams of the early 60s (I think Maury Allen wrote it) Stallard comes off as a really cool, funny guy. He rags on Duke Snider a lot. Snider wanted to end his career on a "contender." Stallard let him have it.

Old Timers Day 1964. Tracy pitched a 10-0 shutout over the Braves! I was there with my dad. Anyone else remember that game?

Somebody said about him: "Everyone knows who he is. Nobody knows where he is."

He fooled around with Julie Newmar? My hat is off to him. Hubba-hubba!

This guy came to the Mets in 1963 with Elijah Green for Felix Mantilla. He was later traded to the Cardinals for Johnny Lewis, and Gordon Richardson. He was not a very good pitcher, teaming with Jack Fisher and Al Jackson. What I remember about him is that when he pitched, Ralph Kiner would say "Tracy Stollard" pitching. I believe he was from some place in Virginia.

Does anyone remember that in addition to serving up the 61st home run to Roger Maris (on the last day of the 1961 season) and, I think, losing 1-0, Tracy Stallard was the opposing pitcher for the Mets at Shea against Jim Bunning and his perfect game?

Tracy one of the funniest men I have ever met. At age 69, soon to be 70, still shoot in the mid to high 70's on the golf course. One of a kind.

My first ever ballgame outside of NY was at Chavez Ravine in LA 1964. I was 8 years old and had family in Hollywood so I used to spend most summers there. Tracy Stallard pitched for the Mets and Maury Wills hit a foul ball that hit my grandfather and I (3rd base side) but unfortunately bounced behind us where some kid reached for it and got the prize. Mets lost 4-3 but what a great game. I never forgot Tracy Stallard or Maury Wills after that. I also never again came close to catching a ball in the hundreds of games I attended after that. Some luck huh?

I believe that Tracy Stallard holds the batting record of most plate appearances without earning a base on balls.
