HERE IS WHAT OTHER METS FANS HAVE TO SAY:

In 1987 I attended a Mets game and, due to some connection my father had, got to sit in a luxury suite for the first time. After the game we exited through the Diamond Club and there were fans waiting outside for players to sign autographs. The Mets had just called up John Mitchell and nobody knew who he was or what he looked like so I told my brother, Dave, that I was John Mitchell and to ask for my autograph. Both he and my sister asked me and began to spread the word and before I knew it I was beseiged by autograph seekers. The funniest thing about it was that Jeff Innis, a real Met, was about 15 feet away with only a few fans around him while I struggled to accomodate John Mitchell's throng of fans. Eventually my father got tired of waiting and called "Let's go John!" so I had to leave and walk to our car, which was parked a half mile away under the highway. Not exactly players' parking.

It's too bad this guy was ever a Met, other than his 10 innings in 86. If he had never been a Met, they may have won it in 87. Not that losing that year was his fault, it wasn't. But if the Mets pitching staff hadn't been so decimated by injuries in 87, no one would have ever known this guy and we may have won the division that year. At least he won three games.

I attended Mitchell's career highlight, his complete game at Shea. Looking at the list, I guess it was the August win over the Phillies. I remember he had a straight-over-the-top motion that looked like it probably was very hard on his arm.

Wasn't John Mitchell the guy who was "lost at sea" for over 24 hours during 1987 spring training?

Seriously, didn't he somehow get stranded in the middle of the ocean treading water for like a day?

Maybe that was just one of those rumors you heard when you were 8.
