As hard as it may be to believe, this journeyman left-handed reliever is the only player ever to appear for the Mets who had the first name "Yorkis." He tossed less than ten innings for the New Yorkers, but was around long enough to appear on this really nice-looking 1997 Fleer card. Two other cards appear below.
