Staub retired following the 1985 season with a career slash line of.279/.362/.431, 292 home runs, 499 doubles and 1,466 RBIs. But that changed his life and turned him into a true New Yorker. He also had a near fatal heart attack in 2015.
Six years ago, Staub was inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in St. Marys, Ont. He could have taken me easily.
In 1975, he became the first Mets player to drive in 100 runs in a season, setting a club record with 105 that wasn't broken until 1990.
