1973 Mets Trivia – Win a Free Copy of Met Silverman’s Swinging ’73


The 1973 New York Mets are not playing baseball today, May 10, 1973.

(Though the Knicks did win it all.)

So, to continue our celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the unfathomable Pennant-winning ballclub, Matt Silverman, aka Met Silverman, has offered a free copy of his book, Swinging ’73, to the 1st person who answers the following question via twitter. The book not only covers plenty Metsian happenings from someone as passionate about the team as Matt, but gives the entire 1973 baseball story the same passionate Metsian treatment, painting a vivid picture of the historic year.

We expect everyone to go by the honor code and not look it up before tweeting us with the hastag #73MetsTrivia.

 

Which players did the Mets send to the Atlanta Braves in exchange for Felix Millan and George Stone?

 

Honor Code, please.

 

(Congrats to @xrodriguez525 for getting the correct answer of Gary Gentry and Danny Frisella.)
