I grew up with Les in Billings, Montana. Grade school through high school. I just wanted everyone to know that besides being a great hurler, Les has always been a good person. It is, indeed, sad, that the Mets didn't give him a ring, when they won the pennant. Les figured in their plans, they shoudda figured him in a ring. I will ALWAYS be a Les Rohr fan, both professionally and personally.

I grew up a block from Les Rohr and batted against him as a 12 year old. I was 10 at the time. Plum ugly for me. Les deserves a ring, ya bums. Les is by far and away one of the nicest people I ever met.

Les Rohr was a number draft pick of the Mets. As I recall, the Mets played a twenty inning game in Houston early in the 1968 season. Rohr was the losing pitcher.

Rohr was the losing pitcher in the 24 inning, 1-0 loss to Houston in the Astrodome on April 15, 1968. Tom Seaver was the starter in that game.

Rohr made his major league debut on September 19, 1967 and was the winning pitcher in a 6-3 win over the Dodgers. He followed that up with a loss to the Astros, and then beat the Dodgers again in the second- to-last game of the season, 5-0.

He pitched in two games in 1968, getting the loss in the 24-inning game, and another loss a week later in a start against the Dodgers. He actually got into one game in 1969, too.

He finished his career with a 2-3 record, with all of his decisions coming against the Astros (0-2) and the Dodgers (2-1)!

Les is one hell of a guy. I should know I am his daughter. He will always have love for the game. He is the pitching coach for an American Legion team in his home town and is always willing to help the young players. In my eyes I believe he deserves a ring, maybe he didn't have 50 strikeouts that year but at least he was there, how many of you can say that. Love ya dad.

The only Met, and as far as I know the only major leaguer (although I may be wrong), to be born in England.

Several MLB players, most recently Lance Painter, were born in England. But my Dad seems to recall Les Rohr was merely born there, perhaps due to military status of his parents (a la Ron Gardenhire being born in Germany), and he grew up in the midwest. Does anyone know what the exact story with that was?

Why does a guy who didn't even pitch 2 innings in 1969 deserve a ring? He got rocked in the only game he pitched ! He probably is a good guy but that's not the criteria for a ring.

Mr. Rohr was actually on a 1968 Topps National League Rookie Stars card #569, shared with an Ivan Murrell of the Astros.

A little (padded) write up (has lefty twice!): "The New York Mets are high on this hard-throwing southpaw. Les is 6'5" tall and weighs 210 pounds. The lefthander won 2 games for New York last season".

He is now an immortal!
