Too bad there's no picture of him because all I can remember about this guy were his side burns.

We need a picture of Dwight. I remember him with the complete hippie look. Bushy beard and glasses. Always fun to watch him ride in from the bullpen in those baseball cap vehicle the Mets used to drive their bullpenguys in.

I went to a Louisville Riverbats game about three years ago, and Dwight was the pitching coach - I think for Louisville. Maybe he was the Toledo Mud Hens coach. Anyway, he was there. His picture was in the program - he still looks like Stu Cook from Creedence Clearwater Revival.

One of the first games my dad ever took me to, Dwight Bernard came in for what I believe was his first major league appearance. He came in with the bases loaded and one out and induced a 1-2-3 double play to get out of the inning against Steve Carlton and the Phillies. I think the Mets actually pulled it out in the 10th inning. I think Carlton dinged a homer in that game.

I have this guy's '79 Topps rookie card (with Juan Berenguer and a nobody). I remember Dwight and not the other guy (besides Berenguer) because, in that picture at least, he looks like Weird Al.

I remember the sideburns. The name was great, too. He was one of the many batting-practice pitchers the Mets used to impersonate major leaguers in 1978 and 1979.

Although Dwight was lanky, I remember his "short arm" delivery -- it looked like the ball was coming out of his chest. Unfortunately there wasn't much deception going on.

What I remember most about Dwight Bernard is that whenever he came in to pitch for the Mets, the game was already lost...or soon would be.

I believe that the other player on the '79 Rookie Card with Dwight and Juan Berenguer was Dan Norman. An outfielder the Mets got from Cincy in the Seaver trade. Bernard was the second best pitcher the Mets ever had named "Dwight".

Dwight Bernard ended his major league career by pitching for the Brewers in the 1982 World Series, the Brewers' only World Series to date.
