This Cuban was actually the last pitcher to appear in the Polo Grounds. On October 13, 1963, a little-known event took place after the regular season had ended -- the first and only Latin All-Star Game. The NL Stars led 5-0 going into the 9th. Bauta allowed two runs but finally "closed" it.

I remember him with the Mets around 1963-64. Whenever he would come into a game Lindsey Nelson would say, "Ed Ba-oota, Ed Baoota." That's what I remember about him.

Ed was part of a trade that helped the Cardinals become a dominant NL team through most of the mid-to- late 1960s. Bauta and Julian Javier went from the Pirates to the Cardinals in 1960 for Vinegar Bend Mizell and Dick Gray.

Bauta was not around for the Cardinals' championships, but Javier was a key to their success.

Ed's final appearance as a Met--and in the major leagues--was against the soon-to-be World Champion Cardinals on May 9, 1964 at Shea. The last batter he faced was Tim McCarver, who grounded out.

Sent a baseball and a baseball card to Mr. Bauta recently, and he signed both and sent it back right away with a nice personalized note. A classy man.
