Brook was another very promising prospect that never blossomed in the majors for the Mets. Couldn't break in behind Hundley but hasn't done very much in other uniforms.

They always compared him defensively to Ron Karkovice. Unfortunately, he isn't even as good a hitter as Karkovice was, and Karkovice was a .220 career hitter. One of several Mets catching prospects that went bust, like John Gibbons and Vance Wilson.

Brook Fordyce was a classy guy. I am not a Mets fan, but I spent my high school years going to St. Lucie Mets games. While Brook was there he was great. He did well on the field and was really cool to this high school kid off the field. First it was signing autographs, then it was coming up and saying hello to me in restaurants and street festivals. Sure he may not be the best catcher to ever play, but he is a class act.

I had high hopes for this guy looking at his numbers in the minors. When I finally saw him play, it was 1992 and he was one of the more promising in Binghamton's lineup. Got off to a great start that year, but struggled toward the end of the year. I saw them on the last day of that season, and as I recall he drove in a run to help Bobby Jones get the shutout victory over the Albany-Colonie Yankees to send the B- Mets to the playoffs. After the game, Brook was one of the first, as well as one of the nicest players who stepped outside the B-Mets locker room. There was a party going on inside, but he didn't brush off the fans. When he said he'd come back, he eventually did. This was a far classier move than what Bobby Jones pulled. Bobby let all of us know, in no uncertain terms that his beer was more important than the fans.

Hey! I too got Brook's autograph outside the Binghamton Mets clubhouse. Were we at the same game?

Baseball can make you feel old. I remember, as a kid, my shock upon seeing a baseball card with a player who was born after 1955 (it was either Dale Murphy or Alan Trammell). Now, I don't collect cards and am not sure that I would want to.

Brook Fordyce and I were both born on May 7, 1970. So I have an admittedly peculiar reason to be interested in him. He never became a great player, but he is still in the bigs, ten seasons and counting. I just wish he had played more games with the Mets. I remember cheering very loudly when he finally came up to bat for the Blue and Orange (Memo to Mets: GET RID OF THE BLACK UNIFORMS, PLEASE). Little did I know that he would be gone in a hurry.

I'm never going to be a Tampa Bay Devil Rays fan. And perhaps Brook wouldn't be here but for expansion. But he's here, and I hope he stays here for many more years to come. I can't play baseball worth anything, but maybe Brook and I can share a birthday cake (if not some beers) someday. You go, guy!

Hey Jonathon Stern, I SHALL be sharing a beer with Brook Fordyce this coming Tuesday night, April 29, 2008. Brook opened up a baseball training institute for Little Leaguers in Stuart, Florida called "Frozen Ropes." My son was in the Fall League (2007) and Brook was his manager. What a GREAT guy and class act. As I am the local college history teacher, and sometimes local library guest lecturer, I helped arranged a Baseball Day at the Blake Library. We had local residents speak (Hal Evans from the MLB Commissioner's Office with his extensive memorabilia collection on display; Jim Kaat, 25 year MLB pitcher and Hall of Fame candidate, and Brook.) Brook's enthusiasm for the game still burns brightly. He is GREAT with the kids and what a WIN-WIN situation to have an ex-major leaguer training my son on the fundamentals and mechanics of the game. I think catchers know the game better than any other player. Viva Brook Fordyce!
