"According to Von Hayes, Mets catcher Charlie O'Brien tried to follow in (Gary) Carter's lippy style. 'But the first time I walked up to bat when he was catching, I said to him, 'Hello, Pete,' purposely mistaking him for Pete O'Brien, Seattle first baseman, and he didn't have anything more to say to me.'" Sportswriter Norman Macht in Baseball Digest (November 1991, "Gabby Catchers in Majors: Are They On the Way Out?")
