The '69 Mets' Art Shamsky In Albany

Jun 17, 2019

The new book: "After the Miracle: The Lasting Brotherhood of the '69 Mets" is the inside account of an iconic team in baseball history - a consistently last-place team that turned it all around in just one season - told by ’69 Mets outfielder Art Shamsky, Hall of Fame pitcher Tom Seaver, and other teammates as they reminisce about what happened then and where they are today.

Art Shamsky will be in Albany, New York on June 18 when The New York State Assembly and Senate will pass a resolution to honor the 1969 Mets team on the 50th anniversary of their championship season. 

Shamsky was a Major League baseball player for eight years, starting with the Cincinnati Reds in 1965 and then joining the New York Mets in the winter of 1967. Since his retirement from baseball, he has been involved in various businesses and worked as a sports broadcaster at WNEW-TV in New York City and on ESPN, and as a broadcaster for the NY Mets.
