Art Shamsky's book After the Miracle to be Released Today

2019 is the 50th anniversary of the 1969 New York Mets who surprised the baseball world by winning the World Series after being perennial losers. Much will be written and done for this milestone anniversary.  There will be a weekend celebration at Citi Field this June.

After Art Shamsky spoke about the book at the recent SABR meeting, I ordered it from Amazon.com.  He will report on relationships among the members of that team over the years.  There will be a chapter about his visit to Tom Seaver in California.  It was recently reported that Tom is suffering from dementia and will no longer make public appearances.

Art and his co-author Erik Sherman were interviewed on WNYC radio.
