I was very sorry to see the Mets not give him a better chance. Although 10 innings does not seem to be enough to go on, his whopping fastball brought him a 1.80 ERA, which at the very least showed enormous potential. I hear he's had some injuries, but otherwise has pitched well in Japan. Maybe his 6' 9" of pure pitching power will soon be brought back stateside, so the whompers can go wum-boom woo-woo!

He was a much better basketball player at St. John's than he was a pitcher in the majors.

Randy Johnson height, Lee Guetterman stuff. Must be making a living in Japan off his height.

I was a senior at St. John's University when Terry was a freshman. He and I were in Professor Miselli's History of Journalism class. I sat behind him, and I recall him being very upbeat and funny.

One time, Terry was telling his buddies how he was going to give up playing basketball and pursue a career in boxing. His nickname, he said, was going to be "Iron Dukes" Bross. Professor Miselli overheard him, rolled his eyes over the nickname, looked at his gangly physique and said, "I think you better stick to basketball."

A friend later told me that Terry also played baseball for the St. John's team, and I was surprised a few years later when he made the Mets. I think I may have scored a game or two when he was with them in the early 1990s, yet I always recalled his days when he was known (briefly) as "Iron Dukes" Bross.

Promising St John's basketball player who never panned out.

Wally Backman's agent's name is Terry Bross. Is it the same guy?

I actually tried out for an American Legion baseball team in Bridgewater, NJ with Terry in 1985 or 86 and I had the pleasure of taking my turn in the batter's box with Terry throwing BP. Terry threw EXTREMELY HARD: lots of natural movement on his heater and he had a real nice breaking ball.

His heat was definitely his bread and butter. Never heard much about him after that!

Looking through my old scorebooks it turns out I was at Bross' major league debut. It does seem like a 1.80 ERA should have given him a better opportunity.

At least he had the chance to play, although play very little, for the greatest St. John's Redmen team of all time: the 1984-85 squad of Chris Mullin, Walter Berry, Bill Wennington, Mark Jackson, Shelton Jones, and Coach Looie; the team that held the #1 spot in the country for two months; the team that couldn't beat Georgetown and its devastating center Patrick Ewing.

I grew up with Terry - he lived around the corner from me in Bridgewater. He was always very talented with whatever he pursued. I wish him the very best.
