June 29, 2008 WOW, Jeff Bittiger. What a great guy! Jeff was from, I believe, Moonachie, NJ (or close by!) I was from Belleville, NJ. Jeff was Spring Training with the Mets in St. Pete Florida, in the early 80s. Jeff asked me out on a date and took me to Busch Gardens in Tampa Florida. What a great date! AND What a sweet guy. Over the years, I still hear his name from time to time. He was an awesome pitcher and is still recognized for that by the sportscasters. I wish I knew where he was now.
September 2, 2008 I agree; Jeff was a great person! His father used to drive 9 hours to watch Jeff pitch every game he started. Greatness must be in the genes!
September 2, 2008 What a great guy! Met him during the Jackson Mets era. He went out on a date with one of my friends. He was a gentleman. Where is he now and what's going on with him these days?
August 14, 2009 Jeff was from Secaucus, NJ.
May 12, 2010 Jeff is now director of player development for the Lehigh Valley Baseball Academy and a scout for the Oakland A's. For many years he was a player-coach in indie-league ball, mostly with the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks. He was still on the mound as late as 2002, aged 40.
