Lee Mazzilli Biography
Lee Mazzilli was born March 25, 1955, in Brooklyn, New York and is a former Major League Baseball player, coach, and manager. On December 11, 2006, he was hired as the lead studio analyst for SportsNet New York, the New York Mets' cable television network.
In 1979, Mazzilli led the Mets with 181 hits, and 79 runs batted in, and was their sole representative at the All-Star Game in Seattle. Mazzilli hit a game tying solo home run in the eighth inning of that All-Star Game, and drew a bases-loaded walk in the 9th to bring in the winning run of the National League's 76 victory. The following year, he had his best statistical season, leading the Mets with 162 hits, 31 doubles, 16 home runs, 76 RBIs, 82 runs, and 41 stolen bases.
Following the 1981 season, where he hit only .228 and was hampered by injuries to his back and elbow, he was traded by the Mets to the Texas Rangers. Though initially unpopular with Met fans, the deal would prove to be a good one, bringing minor league pitchers Ron Darling and Walt Terrell in return. Darling would go on to be a key starter on Mets' 1986 World Series championship team, while Terrell was traded to the Detroit Tigers for another important player on that team, third baseman Howard Johnson following the 1984 season.
Mazzilli turned out to be an important part of their championship team. His career with the Mets continued until 1989 when he was claimed by the Blue Jays on waivers. Mazzilli retired after the 1989 season, his 14th in the Major Leagues.
