Happy Birthday Roy Lee Jackson

Happy birthday today to Roy Lee Jackson.

One of my earliest memories of visiting Shea Stadium was in 1980, with Roy Lee Jackson starting the game for the Mets. I think it might have been an Old Timer’s Day, but can’t remember for sure. In any case, I remember Roy Lee striking out 7 or 8 batters in the first four innings, then leaving not long after, and the Mets lost. That was the way things went back then.

Other birthdays today: Ray Searage, Charlie O’Brien, Armando Reynoso, and Joe Hietpas.
