The story of the 1969 New York Mets' season has long since entered sports lore as one of the most remarkable of all time. Future Hall of Fame ace Tom Seaver snagged the biggest headlines, but here Wayne Coffey also profiles pitcher Jerry Koosman, who grew up on a Minnesota farm and was only discovered because of a tip from a Mets' usher; erratic slugger Ron Swoboda, who turned into a glove wizard when it mattered most; and manager Gil Hodges, who had a fundamental belief in the power of every man on the roster, no matter his stats. Telling a tale that is still thrilling, Coffey recounts how this team of untested youngsters and lightly regarded veterans upended the Baltimore Orioles in one of the truly classic World Series.
