Koufax sighting ... in the Mets' camp

February 16, 2010 |  1:05 pm
Sandy Hall of Fame pitcher and semi-recluse Sandy Koufax made an unexpected appearance at the Mets' spring camp.

Maybe he’s prepping for his Feb. 27 appearance at the Nokia Theater.

David Waldstein writes in the New York Times that nervous Mets pitchers were stunned when the left-hander showed up Monday to watch them throw and offer kernels of advice.

Koufax lives in the Dodgers’ former spring training home, Vero Beach, about 40 miles north of the Mets’ camp at Port St. Lucie.

Koufax said he came down to visit Terry Collins, the Mets minor-league field coordinator and former Dodgers minor-league manager. He’s made visits to the Mets' camp in the past.
