Eric As I recall, an outstanding defensive player. I believe he's now in the minors.
Bob Hackett Pat is still hanging on in the independent Atlantic League.
June 22, 2001 That's what I recall too, Eric--Pat made one of the best catches I ever saw by a Mets CF short of Tommie Agee in the '69 Series. He sprinted from far left center to the gap in right, climbed the wall, and hauled the ball in. He just couldn't hit.
June 23, 2001 Does anyone remember the last game of 1992, Pat was injured running into the Wall (the only reason I know is because I have pics) but my friend with the same last name as John Valetin said, he was also there and that he toe up his knee. I doubted him but it turned out to be true
Also Barry Bonds' last game as a Pirate
September 29, 2001 i recall one game when pat howell made what I still consider to be among the greatest catches in baseball..it was at Shea and hea ran back to the centerfield wall and with his back to the plate ran up the wall and made a hell of a grab...
June 12, 2004 Pat remains to this day a true ambassador of baseball. It is true that he still plays in the minors with the Nashua Pride but he is also a first base coach. His love of the game is infectious and he always has time for charity work and to acknowledge the fans. There should be more like him in MLB today!

July 18, 2011 Pat was an outstanding defensive player. If my memory serves me correctly, I believe he made two great catches in one week that were ranked #1 and #2 on a list of the Top 5 Plays on "This Week in Baseball". Good glove man. I just wish he was a better hitter.
