HERE IS WHAT OTHER METS FANS HAVE TO SAY:

Although he never made it to the majors, the drafting of Henry "Hank" McGraw in 1961 proved to be a fortuitous move for the Mets. He persuaded the Mets to scout his kid brother Frank "Tug" McGraw. Hank spent about 12 years in the minors as a catcher-first baseman. Too bad we never got to see a battery of Frank and Hank.

I had read a story somewhere about Tug's brother. One of the reasons why he never got a shot in the major leagues was because he was totally into the Haight/Ashbury world of free thought and expression and that made many right-wing baseball people uneasy and who wanted ballplayers at that time to be NO-NONSENSE people.

I pitched for the 1964 Salinas Mets and Hank was our center fielder and clean-up hitter. He was a great athlete who ran down many of my pitching mistakes. I saw him in 1969 at a Mets-Phillies game - he was so proud of Tug. I recall Hank was actually surprised and in awe of his own strength - after a couple tape-measure home runs he would be in disbelief when we told him where they landed - and yes, Hank was a free-thinking surfer

Lived in Williamsport when Mets came to town. Hank played mostly in RF, had an excellent arm. I saw him hit home plate from deep right field corner. Was very disappointed he never made the show. Also saw Nolan Ryan pitch; he had very strong fastball but was just a little wild in those days.
