Well I got his autograph before a game in 1990, hoping perhaps that he'd make it big and I would have a memento. But it did not happen. Don't let that discourage you from getting other prospects' autographs, though. THey might hit the jackpot and you would have a solid investment on your hands.

He was really happy to be asked, that's all I remember really. And the Mets won that day.

I worked for the Tidewater Tides from 1989-1991, and I remember Chris as being a very down to earth, personable guy. He was always a team player who gave 110%, and we were all rooting for him to make it to the big leagues.

He could have been a pro football player too. That probably would have been a better choice.

I remember he hit a home run against Pittsburgh, they stood up and giving him a standing ovation. It turns out he was a big high school football star in the Pittsburgh area…high school football is huge in Pittsburgh…Pittsburgh fans have strange taste in sports.

I went to college at the University of Pittsburgh with Chris. Great guy and also excellent QB and Punter for the Pitt football team. Lost touch with Chris over the years, but did get to watch his only hit, a HR, against Pittsburgh. I was so excited for him and watching his smile as he rounded 3rd was awesome!

Jelic came to the Mets with David Cone before the 1987 season.

His major league career consisted of just 11 at bats, all coming with the Mets in the last week of the 1990 season. He hit his only major league home run in what would be the final at bat of his career. It came on October 3, 1990 off RHP Doug Bair, who was pitching the final game of his career.
