"After the Miracle: The Lasting Brotherhood of the '69 Mets" with Art Shamsky and coauthor Erik Sherman
"My old friend and Miracle Mets teammate Tom Seaver was ailing. The greatest Met of all time, the heart and soul of our '69 championship team, and the Hall of Famer who had a baseball career marked by brilliance and a burning desire for perfection, was now practically homebound."
Art Shamsky had stayed in touch with his former teammates over the years. He hoped to get together with Tom Seaver, but the Hall of Fame pitcher was weak and could not travel. So Shamsky, along with teammates Jerry Koosman, Ron Swoboda, and Bud Harrelson visited Seaver at his California home. Together again, the visit triggered memories of that miracle '69 season, as they reminisced about what happened then -- and where they are today.
On the 50th Anniversary year of the Miracle Mets, join our intimate Conversation & Book Release Celebration for inside stories of brotherhood and lasting loyalty.
