Ed Cipot was a great baseball player! He was a good actor and now he is a great priest!

Team.ate in 1977 with Jackson Mets. Interesting hearing he is now a priest. He did have a part in the movie "The Natural" as Gabby. Good ballplayer and nice guy. New vocation not hard to believe; he was always very spiritual.

I remember in the late 70's some company came out with Minor League cards and I got a whole bunch of Tidewater Tides including Ed Cipot. Minor league cards back then were a real rarity and my friend (and fellow Mets fan) and I really treasured them. There was no writing on the front of these cards--just a picture of the player with stats on the back. Cipot's card showed an upward view of him in his batting stance if I remember correctly. Upon obtaining his card I immediately took a liking to him and was really rooting for him to make the Majors. Unfortunately he never did.

Cy.....I heard you're a priest now. Hmmmmm. Do you tell all those troubled youths about your hot temper, the helmets that were broken on dugout steps, the bats thrown in disgust? Just messin with ya Cy. You and Bodie were my first spring training roomies. Edgewater Beach in St Pete. Man, where have the years gone? You were an outstanding ballplayer Ed, as intense as they come

I can verify that Ed Cipot is now Father Ed Cipot. He married my wife and I (did I say that right?) in February. He is at Holy Child parish in Staten Island, NY.

I knew Ed in high school and although I did not know him as a ballplayer, I did know him as a heck of a nice guy. It would have been wonderful to see him on my Mets, but he clearly found his true calling.

I guess if was 1979 or maybe 80, I met Eddie at the White Heron where I was working as a cocktail waitress. we dated briefly and he stayed at my house on 24th street in Virginia Beach, Va. He was a great guy, albeit a little "hyper". Lol I wish him nothing but the best.

Ed Cipot was a very good friend to my wife and I during his days with the Tidewater Tides in Norfolk, Va. He would have several dinners with us during the season. He helped our church youth group with a few fund raisers. He was so good to us we decdided to name our second boy after him. Jeremy Edwin was born in 1987 and is very proud of being given the name of Edwin after Ed Cipot. I wish I could get ahold of him to say hi. Its been a long time.

Got a chance to play with Ed Cipot (left handed outfielder like him but not as good) as we practiced in February 1977 on a St Pete high school field right before spring training. Pete Gabrien was supposed to give me a look but called me into his office and told me who knew my real age so I wasn't around camp very long. Great memories though playing with Ed and befriended Bill Daley who pitched briefly for Little Falls. I always wondered what happened to these guys and am happy to see Ed making a positive impact.
