Bobby Floyd's lone claim to fame is sharing a rookie card with Rollie Fingers.

Bobby Floyd has always been a class act. Was named bench coach because of his vast knowledge of the ins and outs of the game. Will be in the Met organization for years to come because of his skills in running baseball programs.

Besides appearing on a baseball card with Rollie Fingers, Floyd can also brag about being the backup infielder for Brooks Robinson, Mark Belanger, and Davey Johnson on the 1969 Orioles. (He barely played.)

As always behind every good man a good wife, Melody!

Always seemed asleep and/or confused with Howe in the dugout. Did this guy do anything constructive for the team?

Solid guy, solid baseball guy. also enjoyed spending time with his wife Melody. I remember how concerned he was in '04 when the club was in Philly and a hurricane wiped out his home in St.Lucie.

First met Bobby in Miami Springs during spring training with the Orioles, 1969. A real gentleman. He had just joined the Orioles after playing with the Rochester Red Wings, my hometown.

Eight years later and I've learned much, much more about Bobby. He was a slick fielder in the majors and minors, and yes, he did back up Brooks Robinson, Mark Belanger, Davey Johnson, etc. from that terrific Orioles infield. A true class act and two-time teammate (1964 Stockton Ports and 1965 Tri-City Atoms) of my usernamesake, the legendary Minor League flamethrower Steve Dalkowski (who had sadly blown his arm out by the time Bobby saw him).

In searching for info on Steve, I wrote to Bobby and included my telephone number. Well, guess who called with a breakdown of the 1964 and 1965 seasons while he played with Steve! Here's to you, Bobby, and I hope you stay in the Mets organization a whole lot longer! And incidentally, I'll never be able to look at my 1969 Topps Rollie Fingers rookie card the same again, lol.
