HERE IS WHAT OTHER METS FANS HAVE TO SAY:

I'm one of the few who remembers Shaun Fitzmaurice. I was at his major league debut (as a starter). Loved the name and was sorry he never played more.

Shaun went down in the history books by hitting a home run leading off the only baseball game played as part of the '64 Olympics in Tokyo. '64 was yet another "demo" year for baseball. The US team of collegians (Shaun was a Golden Domer and his teammates included Mike "Superjew" Epstein) beat a Japanese sandlot team.

I think Shaun is a now a real estate agent in Richmond.

According to his baseball card in the One-Year Winners series, in 1965 Fitzmaurice went right from Notre Dame to the the minors (Williamsport), where he led the league in outfield assists and hit .262. He's one of the forgotten Mets of the mid-'60s.

Shaun had played college ball at Notre Dame. After being signed by the Mets as a non-drafted free agent in 1965, he was a September call-up in 1966.

In his first major league appearance (September 9, 1966 at Shea against the Braves) Shaun batted leadoff and went 0-for-3. In his first at bat he was struck out by LHP Dick Kelley. Shaun struck out again his second at bat, then put a ball in play during his third plate appearance, popping out to Braves second baseman Woody Woodward.

His first major league hit came on September 28, 1966, an infield single off Cubs pitcher Dick Ellsworth. He had one more major league hit, a single off Houston's Chris Zachary.

His final major league appearance came in the second game of a doubleheader on the last day of the 1966 season. Shaun was batting eighth against Astros starter Dave Giusti. He went 0-for-3 with a walk, and the final major league pitch he saw was a called strike three from Claude Raymond leading off the bottom of the ninth.

Shaun wound up the Pirates organization and then was traded to Atlanta in July of 1969, but never played another game in the majors.

Just received for my collection a postmarked 3 X 5 index card dated September 27, 1966 stamped from Flushing, NY with Shaun Fitzmaurice's autograph sent to a guy in Warrington, PA. That was an off-day Tuesday and Wednesday was his second to last game in a 9-game total career.
