February 25, 2002 Finally! I found him. Mr 668 of 668 in popularity! Rick, that's easily the greatest accomplishment of your big league career, judging from your 1 for 16 career with the Mets. I remember him, but I don't remember who he played for before. Pittsburgh? St. Louis? The Dodgers?
August 2, 2003 I went to high school with Rick at Oak Park class of 1981
December 30, 2006 I remember Rick's first weekend with the Mets quite well. Rick was sicker than a dog in his first home stand but refused to tell anyone and played anyway. I begged him to tell Dallas Green that he was too sick to play but he still had to prove himself and didn't want to hurt his chances. I ended up getting sick a few days later--the morning he left for a nine day road trip and I layed in bed at the hotel for three days with three kids barely able to move. It was then that I realized just how sick he had been and he played anyway!! It was that same drive and determiniation that earned him a baseball scholorship to the University of Texas and then later into professional baseball. He made it! He lived his dream! I am proud to call him my husband!
April 27, 2007 Mrs. Parker I really don't remember your husband as a Met or for playing for any other team for that matter. While others might disparage his major league career the Baseball Register says he's had 225 more major league at bats than I have or just about everyone else on this website.
