February 21, 2002 I remember seeing his picture in the back of a yearbook under something like "Stars on the Horizon". Sorry to say I don't remember his major league "career" with the Mets.
December 6, 2002 Ike Hampton was definitely listed as "On the Shea Horizon" in the back of at least a couple of Met yearbooks. He was Francisco Estrada's successor as the "catcher of the future" who was also traded to the Angels. If I remember right, Hampton looked like he wore coke-bottle glasses, which must have been strange behind a catcher's mask.
October 13, 2008 If you want any memories of Ike, watch Yankees classics on YES and see Guidry strike him out as he played the entire game on the night Guidry struck out 19 Angels.
Mike Mets Fan since 1962
May 16, 2013 Ike was the DH when Guidry stuck him out 3 times 6/17/78. I listened to the game. 18 strike outs, 400 Holy Cows.
