Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gerald Peter Buckek (May 9, 1942 in St. Louis, Missouri) is a former professional baseball player. He was an infielder over parts of 7 seasons (1961, 1963-1968) with the St. Louis Cardinals and New York Mets. Buchek was a member of the 1964 World Series champion Cardinals. For his career he hit .220 with 22 home run and 108 runs batted in in 421 games played. Among Mets fans he was known for starting an improbable comeback victory against the Atlanta Braves on July 9, 1967. Down 4-3 in the bottom of the ninth with two outs and nobody on base, Buchek, batting .230, was sent in to pinch hit for Bud Harrelson, who already had four hits, including a double, that game.show more
