Art Shamsky was a Major League baseball player for eight years, and an integral part of the World Championship team in 1969. Since his retirement from baseball, he has been involved in various businesses and worked as a sports broadcaster at WNEW-TV in New York City and on ESPN, and as a broadcaster for the NY Mets.


This heartfelt, nostalgic memoir will delight baseball fans of all ages and allegiances.

-- "Publishers Weekly"

A fond remembrance of a legendary baseball team and the teammates who kept in touch throughout the ensuing decades...An enjoyable tale of a storybook season.

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

Shamsky's account of the 1969 season is exceptional, as is his handling of the team's disparate personalities, the national context in which the Mets staged their Miracle (it was a year for miracles-the first manned moon landing took place less than three months before the World Series), and the coverage of the racial amity on the team.
