This is one of the guys who I thought were going to turn the Mets into a powerhouse in the mid-70's. He was a 1st baseman who had several very solid seasons in the minors, hitting for a good average with some power. I don't know why he didn't get more of a shot in the majors.

The only memory I have of Brock (other than seeing his photo in the Mets yearbook under such headings as "Stars on Tomorrow" or "On the Way Up") is that every time I saw his name in the boxscore, he would have a hit. Judging by his batting average in 1974, I guess he stopped hitting.

I have no memories of Brock Pemberton. I just share his name, which is difficult to live up to! Brock Paul Pemberton

Brock was also a very good basketball player as a kid. Even at twelve and thirteen, he was quick and aggressive. He and his team once clobbered my team in a seventh-grade basketball game in our hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma! I lost touch with him after that, and I'm sorry to learn he had such a short career with the Mets.

I saw Brock play in Triple A and he was a tremendous player and also a great clubhouse leader. I thought he would make it in the majors but I think a lack of power from the first base position hurt him. He was a high average hitter.

I played with Brock his first two years--at Marion and in Pompano Beach. We roomed together at Marion, and I later played against him in AAA (the International League). He was a class act all the way. a leader, great sense of humor, and a great teammate and competitor. He was truly one of the great guys I met in the game. He didn't have a lot of power, but did have some pop from both sides, could spray the ball all over the yard, and was difficult to strike out--a tough out. And he was solid defensively.

Teammate in 1974 Instuctional League. Great guy. Played hard and knew the game. Switch-hitter and great defensive 1st baseman. Mets should have never traded him. Another good player they let get away from them. I wonder if you could ever see how many ex-players got to the major leagues who were in the Mets organization.

One of many Mets players who had their cup of coffee in the show. Got a base hit in the 25th inning during the famous 25 inning loss to the Cardinals on September 11, 1974. As Casey Stengel used to say: YOU COULD LOOK IT UP.

Brock recently passed away. With the Mets way out of the pennant race 1974, he was one of many prospects who got a lot of playing time with the team in September of that year. He hit the ball hard several times and it looked like he could be a solid contact hitter that would help the Mets’ continuous woeful offensive. Sadly, that did not happen.

Pemberton later closed out his career at Single-A as a player/manager, which is a rarity at any level of pro ball.
