September 1, 2001 I was only 12 years old at the time but I really thought bill was going to be a good one in '64.
June 17, 2002 I really enjoyed watching Bill play. His motion was extremely fluid and looked like poetry in motion. It was a great feeling. Now I've grown to love his son.
October 4, 2002 I thought Bill was ahead of his time... and still is!
October 11, 2002 Hey, it isn't often that a guy has more major league baseball cards printed (2) than seasons played (1). That and the fact that he held the record for most games pitched for the Mets for so long is how I best remember Bill.
October 17, 2002 Record holder: most games pitched by a player in his only major league season.
April 18, 2003 I was living on Long Island at the time. Unfortunately I was only two years old and going through a lot of Freudian expeiences. I don't remember Bill but I know his daughter. She is very cute and witty.
May 28, 2004 I have been a Met's fan since 1963, and as a 10 year old I remember Bill Wakefield on the Mets. I wonder did he hurt his arm because just the 1 year and the playing days were over. Does anyone have a reason why he only pitched the 1 year?
July 1, 2004 Here's a trivia question for you. What two future Mets worked as office boys for the Kansas City Athletics as high school students?
Bill Wakefiend and Ray Sadecki
October 28, 2006 This guy was a mystery. He had one fine year (1964, 3.61 ERA, 64 games, once a Mets record), and then he was gone. What happened? His 1966 Topps card showed that he had an ERA in Buffalo over five in 1965.
