Product Overview

In 1964, Dan Reilly landed the dream job of every New York Mets fan. Pulled from his humble position in Shea Stadium''s ticket office to become the Mets'' mascot-and Major League Baseball''s first official mascot-Reilly donned the baseball-shaped, papier-m ch head of Mr. Met and began a career rubbing elbows with some of the game''s most illustrious players. "The Original Mr. Met Remembers" is packed with never-before-told anecdotes, detailed team history, and intimate glimpses of players on and off the field. With a cast of characters that include the inimitable Casey Stengel, the bumbling Marv Throneberry, and Hall of Famer Richie Ashburn, Reilly delivers a rollicking ride from the Mets'' celebrated first season in 1962 to their unexpected and thrilling 1969 World Series victory.

A must-read for baseball fans and sports historians alike, "The Original Mr. Met Remembers" recalls America''s favorite pastime in all its glory, and is a devoted fan''s personal tribute to one of New York''s most celebrated teams.
