    Easy Trivia Q.

    Tell me the name of the Mets relief pitch for the first year wh attended Yale, class of 56. I interviewed him and wrote a column about him in the Long Lisland Post, a Queens weekly, where he said he suspected he was the lowest paid member of his collegel class. Also, who was the aeronautical enigineer from Northwestern on the pitching staff? Are these too easy?

      Without checking this out in a book i am going to guess and say JAY HOOK. i recall watching the 1986 mets history video and he was talking about marv throneberry asking him to make a sign for him in the clubhouse for i guess his locker.

        Jay Hook was the engineer from Northwestern (and he could tell you the physics of a curve ball a lot better than he could throw one). Ken Mackenzie went to Yale (because of his thick glasses, he had a very studious look).

                  Some great pix. Thanx, Polo!

                  I can't help but notice that Dewar's Whiskey ad on the outfield wall next to Listerine. I guess the two could go well together. heh.
                  Put it in the books.

                              WOW!
                              I never went to the polo grounds as I am only 32 but my Dad & uncles tell storys about my Grandfather taking them there as kids.

                              I have a scale replica of the Polo grounds and I have always been fasinated by its design & the alleys, My Dads said it was a dump, Very dirty, but had lots of character.

                              I was also able to play a video game on EA 2005 version of its baseball game for PS2, they had incorporated all the old stadiums in that years version, So cool!
