Rising Apple Off-Season Player of the Week: Lee Mazzilli – Rising Apple – A New York Mets Blog Fan Site – News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Congrats to Rising Apple on successfully posting Mets Police Link Bait

From the time he was called up in ’76 through ’78, you could tell he was slowly starting to get comfortable, and the 1979 season was quite possibly the best overall year of his career. He earned his first and only All-Star selection of his 14-year career, and did so by hitting .303/.395/.449 with 15 homers, 79 RBI, 78 runs scored, 34 doubles, 34 stolen bases, and 93 walks.

He followed up that performance with another strong showing for the 1980 Metsies, hitting .280/.370/.431 with 41 stolen bases, but struggled with injuries to his elbow and back throughout the ’81 season, which led to the Amazins trading him away to the Texas Rangers.
