Share your memories of Al Shirley
HERE IS WHAT OTHER METS FANS HAVE TO SAY:
December 28, 2010 After the Mets selected this high schooler with their #1 pick (#18 overall) of the 1991 amateur draft, Al languished in rookie ball for 2 1/2 seasons where he showed an acute inability to hit a baseball. The Mets saw enough of him to promote him to Class A Capital City in 1993 and over two seasons there Al put up two of the most frightening stat lines ever:
1993: 240 AB, 35 Hits, 121 K, .146 batting average
1994: 437 AB, 93 hits, 23 HR, 56 RBI, 208 K, .213 batting averge
(It takes a real talent to strike out 208 times in a season!)
When the Mets finally traded him in 1995, all they could get for him was catcher Brent Mayne. Al Shirley has to go down as one of the colossal draft pick flops in major league baseball history.
