Career highlights and awards

Hubert Brooks, Jr. (born September 24, 1956 in Los Angeles, California, United States) is a former Major League Baseball player. During his career, he played as a third baseman, shortstop and right fielder for the New York Mets (1980-84, 1991), Montreal Expos (1985-89), Los Angeles Dodgers (1990), California Angels (1992) and Kansas City Royals (1993-94).

Brooks played varsity baseball at Arizona State University and was the third player chosen by the Mets in the June 1978 amateur draft. He was sent to Montreal in a four-player trade that brought Gary Carter to the Mets before the 1985 season.

Brooks was a career .269 hitter with 149 home runs and 824 RBI. He collected career-highs in home runs (20) in 1988 and 1990; in RBI (100) in 1985, and finished 8th in batting average (.307) in 1981. Brooks also appeared in two All-Star games in 1986 and 1987.

He co-held the Mets record for the longest hitting streak with 24 games, tied with Mike Piazza until broken by Moisés Alou in 2007 with a 30 game hitting streak.
