Biographical Information[edit]

OF Pat Howell was signed by the New York Mets and scout Joe Mason as a 9th round pick in the 1987 amateur draft.

Howell was a superb defensive centerfielder. He combined his natural speed (4.3 in the 40-yard dash) with reflexes and daring, making numerous circus catches. Unfortunately, he did not hit enough to stay in the majors.

Howell played Triple A ball through 1994, considered being a replacement player for the Atlanta Braves in 1995, but then went on to play in Mexico (1995-1997) and Taiwan (24 games in 1998). He then returned to the U.S., playing in the independent Northern League for 10 games in 1999 and the Atlantic League from 2000 through 2004. For most of those last five years, he was with the Nashua Pride.
