Ugliest baseball player in Met History-George Theodore a close second

On a blazing hot Cincinnati summer day in August, 1979, Gil Flores blooped a fly ball into short right field, where Reds outfielder Dave Collins tried to shoestring it. He missed. The ball took an astroturf bounce over Collins' head, and rolled all the way back to the wall. By the time the relay came in to home plate, Flores was in the dugout, towling off. And that was his one home run as a Met.

Facially, reminded me of a rather anorexic Keith Hernandez. (Check out his 1979 Topps card and you'll see what I mean.) Other than that, he was a singles hitter that was strong defensively.

Ralph Kiner used to have a contest on Kiner's Korner showing a photo of a Met. You'd call in and win $100 in sporting goods. Well one night it was Gil Flores and I recognized him (why I don't know) Anyway my mom was busy yapping on the phone so I couldn't call in. Ralph than announced there were no winners. Boy was I bummed at Mom!

I saw someone who looked just like Gil standing outside a bank on Springfield Blvd. My friend asked him in Spanish if he was Gil Flores and he said he was and walked away. I'll never knew for sure if it was really was Gil.

I'm glad to see my uncle remembered. (Not always in a good light, but I guess people are entitled to their own opinion.) I'm not much of a baseball fan myself, but I did get to go to several games (coming from a baseball/softball family), and found myself cheering and groaning like any other fan. I am very proud of him, and wish him a very happy birthday (Oct 27). Thanks again to all the fans.

Five years after his last game as a Met he was still with them in AAA. Must've loved the game. Not a lot of guys would stick around in AAA for that long.

For quite a while now, I sat and chatted with "Gil" at the corner bar by my house in Olyphant, PA. I didn't know who he was until about a month ago when I heard someone mention he played ball and asked him about it. He really does love the game and had some great stories. Great guy to sit and have a few drinks with. He looks a lot better than his card, but you can tell it's him.

Didn't know much about Gil because I was a kid. I do remember he and my Aunt Millie where dating I guess. I do have the 1978 or 1979 Mets autograph baseball with all his teammates of those years. Wish I was old enough to have a conversation about baseball. Also remembered going to dinner with Millie and Gil, don't know where exactly, but I get flashes about the dinner table. Hope all is well with Gil!
