HERE IS WHAT OTHER METS FANS HAVE TO SAY:

I met Al in spring training of 1977. He had signed with the Mets out of a tryout camp. Al was a softball player at the time. He told me he went to the tryout and "just threw as hard as I could" They signed him and sent him to St Petersburg, Fla for spring training.

I remember how funny it was when pitching coach Bill Monbouquette had to show Al how to throw from the "stretch" position, something most 13-year-olds can do.

Al had a great arm. He could throw very hard but was raw. I played that year with Al in Wausau, Wisconsin. It was a fun year. We were horrible, but had a good time....on and off the field.

Being from the Bronx, Al didn't fit in too well with the local crowd. He had a few little "scuffles" should I say, but nothing real bad. I was released by he Mets in spring of 80. So was Al. I haven't seen Al since. I did talk to him about 5 years ago. He was the same....funniest guy I ever met....."yeah you, you with the hat" I still don't know how Al got on this. I thought it was for big leaguers.
