Still, his number 10 was the first digit to be retired in Expos history and he was named to the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame in 2012. He almost died in 2015 when he suffered a heart attack on a plane. In New York, he helped the Mets win an unlikely pennant and later helped the families of fallen first responders get back on their feet.
"He was always good to me", said Gibbons.
The beloved Staub was inducted into the Mets Hall of Fame in 1986.
The Mets open their season on Thursday at Citi Field. He earned a place in Mets fans' hearts forever as he helped the club rise from 11 ½ games out on August 5, 1973 to Game 7 of the World Series. "So I guess I better hurry up". "If it gives them that little surge of energy that is very hard to find in things in life, to bring some joy and happiness to them, that's the objective of this organization", said Staub, whose uncle Marvin Morton was a New Orleans motorcycle cop killed in the line of duty.Читайте также: Next Pokemon Go Update Will Add Quests and Feature Mew
Following a half-season return to Montreal and a season with the Texas Rangers, Staub returned to the Mets in 1981 and finished out his career as a 1st baseman, pinch-hitter deluxe and de facto coach. On January 8, Staub announced that, in conjunction with Catholic Charities, his foundation had also served 9,043,741 meals to the hungry at food pantries throughout NY over last 10 years, with funds though his annual wine auction dinner and foundation golf tournament.
NY traded Staub to Detroit in December 1975 and he made his final All-Star team with the Tigers in 1976. He made his major league debut with the Houston Colt.45s in 1963, eight days after his 19th birthday, and led the NL with 44 doubles in 1967 for the renamed Astros, earning his first All-Star selection.
Staub was one of the original Expos in 1969, quickly becoming a fan favourite by hitting.302 with 29 home runs and 79 RBIs during that first season. He owns a major league record-tying 25 pinch-hit RBI in 2,951 games during 23 seasons.
Staub had a.362 career on-base percentage. One of the best contact hitters of his time, Staub struck out just 888 times in 9,720 at-bats and drew 1,255 walks. He dropped off after getting 3.8 percent in 1997. The entire Mets organization sends its deepest sympathy to his brother, Chuck and sisters Sue Tully and Sally Johnson.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
