Biographical Information[edit]

Nicknamed "The Stork", George Theodore played outfield for the New York Mets in 1973 and 1974. He is probably best remembered for a brutal outfield collision with Don Hahn during a 1973 game against the Atlanta Braves at Shea Stadium in which Theodore fractured his hip.

Today, he serves as a youth baseball coach and gives counsel to elementary school students.

The back of his baseball card says that George "likes marshmallow milkshakes."

He is the only player in Mets history who was born in the state of Utah.
