Jesse's Top 5 Highlights and Oddities

1. Struck out Marty Barrett in Game 7 of the 1986 World Series, threw his glove in the air as the Mets won their second World Series in franchise history.

2. Holds the major-league record for games pitched (1,244) and games pitched in relief (1,240).

3. On July 22, 1986, when the Mets ran out of position players in an extra-inning game in Cincinnati, Orosco and Roger McDowell switched between the outfield and the mound. Whenever a lefthander came to bat, Orosco pitched and McDowell played leftfield, and when a righthander hit, McDowell pitched and Orosco played rightfield.

4. The last time that Orosco's innings pitched exceeded his appearances was 1990, when he totaled 64 2/3 innings in 55 games with Cleveland.

5. Didn't go on the disabled list until 2000, at age 42. ... 7177.story

Gotta love the old timers. ;-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
