The guy's amazing, he's made a career of being a Triple A player. He's back with the Mets now, playing SS and 2B for Norfolk. He still can play the hell out of SS. Too bad he had no stick.

Oh Sean, do I remember that game. I think I broke about 5 things around the house during that 9th inning. And Murphy's call was classic. He was in total disbelief.

I hate to burst everyone's bubble, but it was NOT Kevin Baez who caught the line drive in that "they win the damn thing" game against the Phillies in 1990.

It was Mario Diaz.

Back to Baez. Yes, I did a double take when I saw him listed in the Mets' 2001 media guide this year. What the hell; let's bring him up. He couldn't be any worse than Jorge Velandia.

He's still hanging in there! Played all of 01 with the Tides at SS and 2nd and is now playing with the Long Island Ducks.

His name was always in the local Rockland paper as a kid from the county who they were tracking. I rooted for him to catch on somewhere since he was a local kid but he never had very good numbers in AAA so it didn't seem like it was ever going to be.

A real gentleman who is currently a player/coach with the Long Island Ducks of the Atlantic League. He was the MVP of this year's All-Star Game. Always willing to sign autographs.

I was at Game 3 of the Atlantic League championship series a few nights ago in Camden. Kevin got hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to force home the winning run in the top of the 7th, as Long Island beat Camden 4-3 to sweep the series 3 games to 0. He went 0-for-3 otherwise, but played a solid short (9 assists, started 2 double plays and in the middle of another). It's good to see him still playing.

This is one guy who should have made it back to the bigs. Amazing shortstop who got better with age.

I played against Baez in the Parade Grounds in Brooklyn in the mid-1980's when I was 19 or so. I played for the Cadets and he played for Youth Service which was a big rivalry. Baez pitched and played shortstop back then and he was actually a pretty good pitcher. I remember him as being a very "smooth" player who was a little cocky but who seemed like a nice kid. And very fast.

I played with Kevin in Little League for Gil Hodges on the All-Star team, and on our team it was me and Kevin who were the sparkplugs on the team. I was the catcher and Kevin was a good shortstop back then. I remember he was a practical joker and when I saw him on the Mets I was glad for him. He deserves it. He's a good guy.

I just played against Kevin in the Mets fantasy camp. He is a great guy and he was kind enough to pose for a picture with me afterwards. Shame his career in the bigs didn't last a lot longer.

Kevin saved the LI Ducks bacon in a one game playoff against the Bridgeport Bluefish. His diving stop in the hole in the bottom of the eighth prevented the Bluefish from taking a late lead. The Ducks won in the ninth on an outfield throwing error by ex-Pirate William Pennyfeather. No Baez = no championship for the Ducks in '04. THANKS KEVIN!

Kevin played SS for Dominican College. (Orangeburg, NY) In 1988 he hit two 380+ foot HRs off me with Astros and Twins scouts in stands. I pitched for Nyack College. And he is not supposed to be able to hit? Maybe I can't pitch...

One of the many kids Fran Healy talked up who amounted to little in the bigs. Good to see that he has become a baseball lifer.
