The 26th Met
February 27, 2002
Randy Sterling was promoted from the Tidewater Tides on Sept. 9th 1974 and made a successful major league debut a week later, credited with a 3-2 decision over the Expos after going 5 2/3 innings. It would be Sterlings only major league victory. -The 26th Met

Wow. 688 of 716 in the rankings. I have not seen anyone else this low.

Randy Sterling was one of the "Future Stars" we always saw in the Mets Yearbooks. He, Rich Puig, Brock Pemberton, several others. I think Bruce Boisclair and Lee Stanton were the only Future Stars to ever play more than a few games in the majors.

I'll check back in a few months to see if this helps his rankings.

I played Little League with Randy. I still see him from time to time. He is currently head of Parks and Recreation in Key West.

Randy always seemed to be among those 'Future Stars' in the Met yearbooks. I was always wondering when he'd be pitching for the Mets. His name and picture must have been on the page with five other hopefuls at least three years in a row.

Finally, he did arrive. He won his major league debut, but nothing more. He just disappeared, having what could have been the quickest career ever for a Met. Was there ever a player with them for less time that never played for another team?

One note about that winning debut: It came in Montreal and one of the Expos' hitters he faced was also making his major league debut in that game. His name was Gary Carter.

Jimrat, you're right about Randy being forever a "future Met." I couldn't believe that he appeared in only 3 games; it seems as though he played for years.
