Sharing a rookie card with Mike Jorgensen isn't much of a claim to fame is it?

One game. One world championship season. One baseball card. I think Jesse had a perfectly balanced big-league baseball career.

2 innings pitched in his only career game in 1969. Did he get a full ring?

Jesse's moment of glory came on September 19, 1969 in the second game of a twi-nighter the day before Bob Moose's no-hitter against the Mets.

Things didn't go well on the 19th for New York, as the Pirates swept a doubleheader at Shea, winning 8-2 in game one, and 8-0 in game two. The Cubs split an afternoon doubleheader that day so the Mets went to bed that night with a four game lead (five in the loss column) and eleven games remaining.

Hudson, a 21-year-old lefty, came into the game with the Mets down 7-0 in the eighth inning. After retiring the first batter he faced (Jerry May) he walked Fred Patek, and after an out and a single, gave up an RBI double to rookie Dave Cash. He then struck out Hall of Famer Willie Stargell.

Hudson then struck out two in the ninth inning and disappeared into the night....

This guy played 1 game in his entire career and there are several comments here, including a description of every batter late in a blowout. It's not Seaver, Hernandez or Piazza that are the true stars of the Mets... it's you fans!

Thanks for the compliment. But as far as I'm concerned, you cannot write too many "fan memories" about a man whose sole major league appearance was for the 1969 Mets, at least not for me. Too bad none of the books mention him.

Jessie had one game and one baseball card. On the card, he is hatless and scowling. It's more of a mugshot than a baseball card. Still, one game and one card are more than we fans have.

Bob Murphy was very high on Jesse. I remember him talking about Jesse's curve ball. Did he pitch after 1969?

This guy hung around the Mets system several years after '69. He was always pictured as a future star in the back of the yearbooks. However it played out, he still made it to the show, and pitched for a World Champion! Not too many guys can say that!
