Ed Charles of the 1969 Mets Passes Away at 84

It was announced yesterday that "The Glider" Ed Charles of the 1969 Mets passed away at his home in East Elmhurst, Queens.  We have already lost several members of that famous team:

  • Tug McGraw
  • Tommy Agee
  • Cal Koonce
  • Don Cardwell
  • Danny Frisella
  • Gil Hodges
A few other members of that team are facing health issues, but it is almost 50 years since that "miracle."

Sometime in the early to mid 1980s I met Ed Charles in Flushing Meadows Park.
