HERE IS WHAT OTHER METS FANS HAVE TO SAY:

Mr Jigglepoo
I remember it was a cold April night and those Cards from St. Louie were in town. This langly right hander who I never heard of before took the mound and displayed the poise of a seasoned veteran. Sitting in my seats in the upper deck of a very empty Shea stadium, I was amazed by the great talent I saw that night. I knew then that this was the start of a budding career. Damn that train!

I was with a friend that knew Mike. We were in St. Louis and Mike let us crash in his hotel room. That night he got his first ML victory against the Cards. He pitched great and I was there with him for it. It's a night I'll never forget. He was a real nice guy.

I met Michael many years ago, through a good friend. I never forgot him. He was very special.

I didn't know that he was Gil Hodges' son-in-law, but I felt that the chief reason the Mets had him on the payroll was that he was from Jamaica Estates.

At that time, the Mets had this idea of bringing in cheap players from the New York area, on the theory that their families would buy blocks of season tickets.

But Mike couldn't find home plate with a flashlight. Great name, though.

Mike Bruhert was the pitching coach at Fordham in the late 80's, early 90's. Two of his pupils were future major leaguers Pete Harnisch and Miguel Jimenez.

I ran into Mike a few months back at the Dunkin Donuts across from Belmont. You have never seen someone so happy to be recognized. I was a diehard when he played, he looks the same, very friendly guy.

By the way, Michael was the EX son in law of Gil Hodges. And he was not born in Jamaica Estates. He was born in Jamaica, Queens. As for finding home plate with a flashlight, he got to first base with just his smile. How's that?

Mike lived in Jamaica, Queens just south of Long Island Railroad's Jamaica station. I played baseball with him in the American Legion Leauge in that area. I played catcher on his team and my catching hand still hurts from his wicked fast ball. We were all neighborhood friends and were very happy when he made the Mets and even happier when he married Gil Hodges' daughter. I hope all the guys from the old neighborhood are doing well.

Mike's younger brother Jummy was one my best friends. We grew up in South Jamaica and to have a friend who had a brother in major leagues was exciting. Mike was a great guy and very competitive even in 3-on-3 basketball pickup games. I was very close to his family during the 70's through the early 90's.
