We have a special treat for you, courtesy of one of our readers, Stephen Hanks, who took the following shots in 1970, 39 years ago today. It was Camera Day at Shea Stadium. As we honor the 1969 Mets later this evening, here is a look at the then, defending 1969 World Champion Mets!
“The Franchise” Tom Seaver
The Skipper – Gil Hodges
Jerry Koosman was so underrated!
This Bud’s for you!
Jerry Grote was a class act all the way!
Ray Sadecki and baby faced Gary Gentry
Tommy Agee hit .286 and won a Gold Glove in ’70!
Eddie Kranepool and Ron Swoboda – Look at those sideburns!
Rookie Ken Singleton and Wayne Garrett, with Nolan Ryan in the background!
Look at those arms on 1969 World Series MVP, Donn Clendenon.
