Felix Mantilla

Felix Mantilla Lamela
Batted: Right
Threw: Right
Height: 6'0"
Weight: 160 lbs.
Born: July 29, 1934 in Isabela, Puerto Rico
Signed: 1952 by the Boston Braves
Acquired: via the Expansion Draft from the Milwaukee Braves, October 1961
Departed: traded to the Boston Red Sox for
Tracy Stallard, Pumpsie Green, and a player to be named later (Al Moran), December 1962

 

After six years with Milwaukee without ever receiving as many as 300 at-bats, Felix joined the expansion Mets in 1962 and had (what was then) a career year, primarily as their third baseman. Shortly after that, he had two outstanding seasons with the Red Sox, and then, a year later, was out of the majors for good. He's pictured here on 1958 Topps, and below on five more, including a 1960 Spic and Span Braves card and a pair of Topps stamps.
