Original New York Met Choo Choo Coleman Passes Away at 80
I can honestly say that I saw Clarence "Choo Choo" Coleman play for the original New York Mets. According to Baseball Reference he played for the Amazins in 1963, 63, and 66. Today the New York Post reported that he passed away at age 80. My condolences to his family. He certainly was an integral part of the original Mets.
