Friend of Foley's, Jay Horwitz
This weeks Burger was actually supposed to debut a month ago, but a certain 3rd baseman announced his retirement and we had to push it back. But having to push things to one side because of Mets news is nothing new to this week’s honoree Jay Horwitz has been with the NY Mets since April 1st 1980 and to be in charge that long is no joke. After being the Vice President of Media Relations since 1980 he will now be moving to a new role as Vice President of Alumni Relations and Te

Remembering Wally Bell
When the MLB post season roll around, it’s an exciting time in baseball. But for me it’s also a time for remembering a good friend of mine and Foley`s that passed away way too soon. Five years ago at this time, Wally Bell left us. Wally was a MLB Umpire who was quite a character and larger than life. As his good pal John Hirschbeck said Wally did everything at 80 mph. Wally did everything except tell a story at 80mph — that always took lots of time. I miss Wally and I would

Remembering John Martin
It was with great sadness to learn of the passing of John Martin. A cameraman for NESN and a great friend of Foley’s, along with our Boston friends Jeff Horrigan, Joe Castiglione and Ian Browne, he was with me from the start. I looked forward to catching up with John when the Sox,Bruins or Celtics came to town. There would always be some ball busting, normally about the position of his ball on the wall at Foley’s. And then there was the mystery Bobbleheads. John loved our Fol

Thank You, David | RE5PECT
With all due respect to Tom Hanks, he had no idea what he was talking about when he said there is no crying in baseball. I’m not a Mets fan, never have been, but I’ve been a fan of No. 5 since before his first big league game. He came to Foley`s for dinner 14 years ago, the night before his major league debut and been the same great guy ever since. So I will proudly admit I shed a few tears Saturday night at Citifield. I didn’t cry for Jeter’s last game or ARod’s send off. I
