HERE IS WHAT OTHER METS FANS HAVE TO SAY:

The minor league exploits of my fellow Staten Islander John "Jack" Tracy were covered extensively by our local daily paper, the S.I. Advance. It seemed like he was always getting a big hit or making a great play. These stories brought welcome relief from reading about our beloved, but admittedly woeful, mid-'60s Mets teams, but they did exaggerate Tracy's potential. The Advance made Tracy look like the heir apparent to Ron Hunt when he was, alas, just another Wilbur Huckle (without the colorful moniker). Some of his minor league numbers aren't too shabby for that era -- in fact he had a better year at AAA in 1967 than Ken Boswell -- but playing The Show just wasn't in the cards for Jack.

Before the '64 season and to promote the new ballpark, the Mets had a train that ran the lines of the LIRR and had "fan fests" in the parking lot. At the Hicksville station, Jack Fisher, Bob Murphy, Dave (?)Smith and Jack Tracy (billed as future Mets stars) gave out autographs, Mets hats (my first of many) and 'milkshakes' in small cartons. I'll never forget it. I still have Mr. Tracy's autograph somewhere.

Don't have fond memories of him. Was an instructor at a camp I attended. Seemed like your typical middle aged frustrated jock.

First guy I met in spring training at the airport in Miami in 1965. Great guy!
