 TIM TEUFEL HAS PARLAYED A SUCCESSFUL PLAYING CAREER INTO A LIFETIME IN THE GAME

Ron Morris

Baseball America first introduced Tim Teufel to readers when he appeared on the cover of the Aug. 1, 1983 issue. Teufel was late into an extraordinary season at Triple-A Toledo in the Twins organization.

Teufel earned International League player of the year honors that season when he batted .323/.437/.577 with 27 home runs and 100 RBIs. That performance merited a September callup, leading to an 11-year big league career that included a World Series championship with the 1986 Mets.

More than three decades later, Teufel has established himself as a baseball lifer. He has scouted, coached and managed. He currently serves as the Mets’ roving minor league infield instructor and club ambassador.

“It’s provided a good living,” Teufel said. “It’s provided an opportunity to provide for my family. It’s been a good venture.”
