Talkin’ Mets: Long Before the Miracle

1962 mets

Happy New Year! The Talkin’ Mets podcast has returned from holiday hiatus.

The hot stove is very cold right now so I decided to take a different approach to this week’s podcast.

This week I chatted with Bill Sullivan, author of the book “Long Before the Miracle,” which examines the early sixties Mets. Hear Bill remember stories about the Polo Grounds, the Dodgers leaving Brooklyn, Jerry Koosman, Ron Hunt, Nolan Ryan and Roger Craig among others. This is a rare opportunity to remember members of the Mets who were part of the transition from “lovable losers” to 1969 World Series champs. 

Next week I will be doing my annual Hall-of-Fame show where I give my ballot and feature a guest who gives their perspective on who should be inducted into this year’s class.
