Wayne Garrett

The redheaded Garrett played mostly third base, and hit .385 for the Mets in the 1969 LCS. He led 1973 World Series players with 11 strikeouts (tying a seven-game Series futility record) and two HR. Brother Adrian spent small parts of eight seasons in the majors. After losing a game to the 1969 Mets, Cub Ron Santo – referring to rookie Garrett at second base, Ed Kranepool at first base, Al Weis at shortstop, and Bobby Pfeil at third base – remarked, “It’s a shame losing to an infield like that…I wouldn’t let that infield play in Tacoma.”
