Biographical Information[edit]

“The Mets were bringing up help for Del Unser, their weary center fielder. Playing every day because the Mets had no one to platoon with him in center, Unser recently endured a slump that reached 0-for-29 proportions. So on May 18, Leon Brown was called up. Brown, who had been kicking around in the minors for several years, is a right-handed batter. That’s the main reason he got the call. The Mets were desperate for any outfielder, particularly a center fielder, who could hit from the right side.” - Jack Lang, The Sporting News

Outfielder Leon Brown hit over .300 at the AAA level in 1974 and 1975 and spent most of 1976 with the New York Mets, hitting .214 with 3 doubles in 64 games (70 at bats). He later played for the Miami Amigos of the short-lived Inter-American League in 1979. He is the brother of one game wonder Curtis Brown.
