I don't think they gave old Stevie a chance. He was definitely one of the best players in the past 10 years. Getting rid of Springer was probably the biggest mistake Mets management has ever made!

How could it have been such a big mistake? He only had 5 ABs as a Met!

Someone called WFAN and suggested that Springer be given a shot to help the sagging '92 Mets. The host (I want to say Ed Coleman, but it might have been someone else) basically laughed the caller off. Then again, 1992 was not exactly a season to smile about.

I am Steve Springer, and I enjoyed every minute of my 14 year career, though mostly all but about a month was in the minors. I spent 11 years in AAA and got over 1600 minor league hits, including playoffs, and 4 ML hits. I scouted with the Arizona Diamondbacks for 5 years and was the West Coast supervisor for three. Now I am an agent with a company called Gaames. I have a wife and two great kids. I made a CD called qualityatbats.com that I am getting great feedback from. I talk about the mental side of hitting, the stuff I learned when it was too late. Thanks for your interest. God bless. -- Steve Springer

I remember my father and I bought a bat that was used in a game by Steve Springer from the Mets Clubhouse Shop in Manhattan. I used it one day to hit baseballs around and the ball was flying. Felt really cool using a major leaguers baseball bat...until it broke. I still have the pieces somewhere.

I was a fan of Steve's when he played for the Tides in the mid 80s. He was one of the most enthusiatic players I've ever known. You could tell when you watched him that he loved the game. I'm glad to see that he has had a successful career as a player, scout and agent. He was always good to his fans. I too have one of his Louisville Sluggers...probably the only "souvenir" I kept from my days working at the ballpark.

I can't say that I liked Springer much but I'm sure he liked me a lot less than I liked him. I have nothing against the guy, but always ragged on him at games late in his career that he wasn't good enough to make the majors. I always sat close to the field at Met Park (close enough that the batters could hear me) and would harass him about not getting to the majors, mostly when the Tides needed a big hit. I can't say that it wasn't his ability to hit in the clutch, but it seemed whenever I would get on him the most, he would always come through with a big hit. I always liked to think he just got mad at me enough to want that hit even more. I'm probably totally wrong, but I like to think that.
