While Jerry Grote was never going dazzle anyone with his offense, he was highly regarded for his ability to handle a pitching staff and was a vital component to the “Miracle Mets” World Series Championship Team in 1969.  Grote was a good defensive player and clubhouse leader and still was a two time All Star.
