Wild man with a wild radio show prior to the Lynchburg ball games along with Duane Howard. You were a blast to watch!

Teammate on the Lynchburg Mets. Converted infielder, became a good pitcher. Always stirring up the pot. Had a name for everybody.

Good competitor with a excellent sinker. Me and my friends use to watch every game. They were a lot of fun to watch. Pete was the closer and would come in and get the ground ball. He was a crowd favorite. I see he kind of kicked around the minors for a few years. He had the stuff to pitch in the majors, but someone has to put you in the position to do so. My friends and I talk about who we saw go to the majors and who we saw not go. And we just shake our heads. Neil Allen; what a joke. Pete did not walk guys he just got the ground ball. You would have been perfect for the 1986 World Champ Mets. GREAT MEMORIES!

Remembered as a guy that was always in the mix. Signed as a everyday player but was converted to a pitcher. Much better everyday player than a pitcher. Not sure what he hit. If I am right he was used as a relief pitcher who did not throw very hard. Not sure where he is at now but I am sure he is better off with a real job.

Pete has an air about him that is truly lost in today's professional sports. He doesn't talk much about his past career, but his athleticism is clearly evident in his kids. Check out Courtney Hamner's stats at JMU for just a small example. I wish I could have seen him play back in the day. Pete is currently a successful business owner. I'm proud to call him my friend and mentor.

Was an adequate Wausau Mets fan and got to see Pete pitch some in Wausau of the Midwest League. Was used mostly as a reliever. Stayed on the disabled list most of the time with elbow problems. Everyone in the stands would hold their breath when Pete came in. He and another pitcher maned Gene Bardot were both used in the late innings out of the bullpen. Both were notorious for coming in a giving up the starting pitcher's runs but never their own. Pete was a converted third baseman who could not hit according to sources and was a mediocre pitcher. When I think back I would rather see Bardot in the late innings instead of Pete. Pete was apparently buried in the lower minor leagues where I think he belonged.
