Randy Sterling – His New York Mets Career 1974

Randy SterlingAfter spending six seasons in the Mets minor league system right-handed pitcher Randy Sterling finally got the call to join the big club as a September call-up in 1974.  He made his Major League debut on September 16 as the Mets starting pitcher against the Montreal Expos. He pitched five no-hit innings on his way to his first Major League victory.  His next start wouldn’t be as successful as he allowed 5 runs, 2 of which were earned, in 1 2/3 innings.  Sterling made one more appearance in a Met uniform pitching 2 innings of relief on September 28. It would be his final Major League appearance.

Sterling finished the season 1-1 with 4.82 ERA.  He returned to the minors in 1975 pitching the entire season with the Tidewater Tides before retiring.

While with the Mets Sterling wore number 35.
