I just remember Phil's picture in the back of the old Wometco Home Theater (WHT) program guide (they had about 5 Mets/Yanks games a month fed from SportsChannel)

Phil Mankowski was on third base when Roy Hobbs (Robert Redford) hit the game-winning home run in the movie, "The Natural."

Rusty Staub told me that Phil Mankowski's post-Mets career was to be the front manager of his restaurant.

Waiter, taste the soup...

Gave a guy I knew the finger before a game at Shea after he sarcastically said to him, "Hey Phil, are you going to play today?"

Just saw Phil the other day, and sure enough he is now in the food service industry in the Western New York region. Still doing very well and still in pretty good shape.

Another in what had been a long line of third-basemen for the Mets. He was cursed with injury and illness in his time with the Mets. Also there was a tie from his appearance in "The Natural" to working at Rusty Staub's restaurant, was that one of the waitresses, who of course was an actress, told him about the auditions for the movie.
