About two weekends ago my church had a men’s breakfast meeting, and the guest speaker was none other than Dwight Evans, the very productive right fielder for the Boston Red Sox from 1972-1990. Listening to Evans speak about his life in baseball and the many things that affected his game, brought me back to the only game that mattered in my life when I was a kid. Dewey didn’t mention the 1986 World Series, but he didn’t […]
I was walking around the mall yesterday with my wife, trying to get her to go into labor with our second child (first son). They say walking is good for kick-starting the labor process at this point, and as we were walking around, I decided to duck into the sports memorabilia store. I was pacing through the store, looking at the autographs of all the great players hanging on the wall, and I came across a beautiful autographed picture of Gary Carter. […]
Here’s another great article originally written and posted back on October 25, 2009 by the always entertaining Ed Leyro. Ed has a great storytelling style and this particular story will appeal to most any Mets fan as we come upon the 25th anniversary of one of the greatest moments in franchise history. Every generation has its defining moment. People who grew up in the 1960s know exactly where they were when President Kennedy and Dr. […]
Shannon Shark of Mets Police came across another one of those all too familiar big bloopers from the Mets front office, who continue to maintain a stronghold on their title of “The Most Inept Front Office In Baseball”. Take a look at one of the newest additions to the Mets Fan Walk for the 2010 season… Looks fantastic huh? Over a dozen of these brand new Fan Bricks honoring some of the greatest and most memorable […]
Two days ago, I wrote about the twenty-third anniversary of Game 6 of the 1986 World Series. Miraculous as that game was, all it did was force a seventh and deciding game. Do you remember seeing the replay of Red Sox catcher Carlton Fisk waving for the ball to stay fair in the 1975 World Series? That home run gave the Red Sox a thrilling 12-inning victory over the Cincinnati Reds in Game 6. That’s […]
We all have them—friends who are overly optimistic, even when things with our Mets look as grim as they possibly can. To put this in perspective, during Game 6 of the ’86 World Series, I was hanging out with a bunch of friends in a bar on Long Island. Among those friends was my buddy Tom from Bayside, and I distinctly remember Tom’s insane optimism through my beer-soaked haze as the season was slipping away. […]
Rickey Henderson and Jim Rice were inducted into the Hall of Fame today. Henderson entered the Hall in his first year of eligibility. He was the greatest leadoff hitter of all-time, setting the career record for stolen bases (1,406), leadoff home runs (81) and runs scored (2,295). Rice waited until his fifteenth and final year of eligibility before he was enshrined in Cooperstown. He was one of the most feared hitters in the American League […]
Whenever the Mets and Red Sox square off in their rare interleague meetings, even a casual Mets fan can’t help but think of the 1986 World Series. Their seven-game showdown was one for the ages, culminating in the World Championship trophy being brought to Shea. During this weekend’s interleague series between the Mets and Sox, I’ve been reliving many cherished memories of that Fall Classic. Those memories have inspired me to write a poem about […]
