Got a chance to play with Ed Cipot (left handed outfielder like him but not as good) as we practiced in February 1977 on a St Pete high school field right before spring training. Pete Gabrien was supposed to give me a look but called me into his office and told me who knew my real age so I wasn't around camp very long. Great memories though playing with Ed and befriended Bill Daley who pitched briefly for Little Falls. I always wondered what happened to these guys and am happy to see Ed making a positive impact.

I had the opportunity of seeing Bobby Croswell play for Tidewater Tides in 1974. He was the shortstop. He had a two-run single in the game. At the end of the season he was named the Tidewatchers (the Tides fan club) MVP that season.

How does Geoff Goetz not have a comment yet??! This is the man that helped bring Mike Piazza to New York! He never reached the big leagues, which stinks for him, but he sure made the Mets a better team, if indirectly.

My memories of Pete go back a long way and are great ones.

My first meeting of Pete was when were were both playing 13 - 15 year old Babe Ruth Baseball in Falls Church, VA in 1970. He was 13 and I was 14. He came to bat against a 15-year-old pitcher and ripped a line drive double down the left field line and I knew he was a special player at that point. His 13-year-old All-Star team won the VA state tournament. The next year, he was 14 and made the same 15-year-old All Star team I was on. Again, we won the VA state tournament with Pete being a huge part of that team. When he was 15, he repeated the feat again.

We continued to play with, or against each other during summer leagues, but we attended separate High Schools.

Pete signed with the Mets after his Senior High School season in 1974 when his American Legion team won the AL World Series. During the off seasons, Pete would drive over to George Mason University to work out with our College team. Ironically, Pete and I competed against each other in the Minors (Carolina League) in 1978 when he was with the Lynchburg Mets and I played with the Alexandria Dukes. Great memories for sure. He still kids me about the foul ball home run that Mets catcher Jodie Davis hit against us to win the game.

Several years after we were both released, we joined up with our childhood and college buddies to play in the local adult Baseball Leagues in Virginia and Maryland for a team called the Springfield Rifles. We dominated for many years thanks to Pete's contributions.

Pete and I are both well into our 50's now and we are still the best of friends. We talk weekly and we play golf together. I knew his family when we grew up and they were great people from a military background. I know his family now and he and his wife Martha have done a great job raising their 3 athletic children (2 girls who both played college basketball and a son who is currently playing college baseball). When we get together, we still talk about the times we shared in the minor leagues and with the Springfield Rifles.

Pete was always successful on the baseball field and is also very successful in life as he runs his own company. Great times with Pete for sure with many more to come.

I got to know "Suggsie" as the other players called him in Marion Va in 76. He reminded me of a left-handed Willie Mays. He should've made it. God bless you Alvin.
