Great speed, but I remember him for one bonehead play. There was a runner on third and one out in the 9th. Leon, playing right, made the catch on a fly ball--but it was in foul territory, deep enough for the guy to tag up and score the winning run.

I remember that when he came up, he was touted by the announcers as a guy with a world of speed who could steal bases. He just never figured out how to steal first base!

I don't have any memories of Leon Brown playing baseball, but I just met him today and he is a totally incrediablly awesome and kind person!

I remember that boneheaded play. Not only was it in foul territory, but I think he dove into the stands to catch it. The winning run scored on the play. Truly AMAZING!!

He came up with a nickname of Leon "Motor" Brown.

Leon Brown signed my Mets yearbook at Shea before a game when I was 10-11 years old. When most of the players ran away from the fans, Leon came over and signed for a bunch of kids. No, he was not a superstar but for a 10 year old it did not matter. He talked to the kids and seemed to really appreciate that he had made it to the major leagues.

Major league baseball in 2003 needs more Leon Browns. Leon, hope you are doing well.

Leon continues to represent the Mets extremely well in Arizona. He is very involved with the Arizona Major League Baseball Alumni Assoc. including teaching kids the fundamentals of baseball. Leon continues to guide my son in being the best infielder he can be. He is very proud of being a Met and Iím a Cubs fan!

Leon Brown, father of my best friend Channing Brown, one of my best coaches in high school, great guy. He can talk baseball for days. His knowledge of the game is endless. He has more energy than most kids today. He has a great passion to teach the game of baseball.

Leon is still a great player. I've had the pleasure of watching him play again recently. I agree with the above, he has more energy than a lot of young guys today. Plus he's a really sweet man with a fun sense of humor. We love Leon Brown!

I loved this guy. He was the Cadillac of 6th-string outfielders.
