After a four-season run with the Detroit Tigers, and a second stop in Montreal, Staub spent 1980 with the Texas Rangers before playing out the last five years of his career with the Mets.

Staub died in a hospital in West Palm Beach, Fla.

Rusty Staub, a six-time All-Star who helped the Mets reach the 1973 World Series, died Thursday - opening day for the 2018 Major League Baseball season - at the age of 73.

According to several reports, Staub died of multiple organ failure at Good Samaritan Medical Center in Palm Beach, Florida.

Distraught Smith breaks down as he accepts blame for ball-tampering scandal
"As I stated before I had no prior knowledge of the (ball-tampering) incident and do not condone what happened at all". Lehmann said now was the time for a new coach of the national side, Cricket Australia said in a statement.

Staub, who always came through in the clutch and became one of the game's best pinch-hitters, was a career.279 hitter with 2,716 hits, 292 homers and 499 doubles. He was the only player in major league history to have at least 500 hits with four different teams. The orange-haired outfielder became a huge hit with fans in the USA and Canada during a career spanning 23 seasons.

Following his retirement, Staub further endeared himself to the Mets community by starting the Rusty Staub Foundation and founding the New York Police and Fire Widows' and Children's Benefit Fund. Staub's charities have since raised more than $150 million. The entire Mets organization sends its deepest sympathy to his brother, Chuck and sisters Sue Tully and Sally Johnson.

The beloved Staub was inducted into the Mets Hall of Fame in 1986.

After that day's attacks in NY, the foundation went on to raise more than $100 million (£71m).

He'll be a player Mets fans never forget!
