Ron is a personal friend. He is a hard throwing and hard drinking son of a gun. and yet, he was the consummate ball player of his day. Today, at nearly 60 years of age, Ron is STILL a friend and is STILL hard drinking while maybe not as hard throwing as he once was. But then again, who of us is. A microcosm of himself can be seen in the gleem in his eye, or was that a sparkle caused by a pretty young thing. Annette, much like Tonto to the Lone Ranger, is his faithful companion, faithful to the end and tolerant of his gleeful attitude toward the life that passes him by while he parks it in the breakdown lane. Truth be known, this guy loves him and loves to bust his chops. Annette is wonderful, sweet and Ron is lucky to have her by his side. Good luck to both.

He had a decent year with the Mets in 1964. Not too many Mets pitchers had an ERA of 3.64. What happened to his career after that season?

Ron Locke is a fun and funny guy. I have played softball with him in Sanibel, FL , for the past four years each winter. He just had bypass surgery in the fall. He is Mr Slim, trim and active as can be. He plays OF with us and plays it like a champ. He is a helluva good hitter, too. He is a great guy and a great teammate.

As a young teen, I remember Ron Locke as a pitching prospect who would lead my Mets to a World Series someday. Well, he never made it that far.

Today, I am a member of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) and I am starting to write a biographical chapter on Ron's life for an upcoming book on Rhode Island athletes who played in the Major Leagues. I will be trying to contact Ron within the next few weeks; hopefully, he'll be able to give me the information to make this a meaningful biography.

I went to Camera Day at Shea and got to take pictures of the players, including Ron Locke, but couldn't get close enough to get autographs. I wrote to teammate Larry Elliot (we shared a last name), and months later he sent me the 6" x 9" piece of paper I had provided with 9 signatures, including Ron Locke. I thank him for participating and providing a great memory for a 10-year-old fan.

Wrote him a couple of weeks ago and he autographed my 1965 NY Mets card with an excellent signature. Thanks, Mr. Locke.
