David Mo He was the FIRST Met to ever give me his autograph (I lost it) and the LAST Met to wear No. 41 before Tom Seaver. You could look it up, as Casey would say....
January 28, 2002 gordie pitched the last three innings of the only met no-hitter ever in spring training of 1965
October 9, 2002 In 1965 when I was 14 I met Gordon Richardson and Larry Miller in the Mets bullpen at Shea of all places. It was Banner Day and in those days you would come in through center field, walk around the warning track starting from left field and exit through the Mets bullpen. Gordon and Larry were just sitting there talking to the fans as they went through. It was a great day and Gordon and Larry were two great guys. I hope they're doing well.
February 14, 2004 Gordie gave up a grand slam to Joe Pepeitone in the 1964 World Series.
February 6, 2013 Sent a very nice photo of him as a St Louis Cardinal in 1964 and he signed it and sent it back pronto! He was a very strong relief pitcher with the Cards in 64 and the Mets in 65. I'm surprised he did not enjoy a longer career.
February 11, 2013 In 1964, Gordie pitched in the World Series for the winning St. Louis team. In 1965, he pitched for the AAA-level affiliate of a Mets team that lost 112 games. Is this what you would call going from the penthouse to the basement? Wow!
