The Rising Apple Report fills the off-day void with its 69th episode! Today, I will host with Rising Apple Senior Staff Writer Mike Lecolant calling in as well. Staff Writer Rich Sparago will join much later in the show.
Their guest today is author Matt Silverman, who has written a number of books, most recently Swinging ’73: Baseball’s Wildest Season. His Mets literary tenacity includes New York Mets: The Complete Illustrated History and 100 Things Mets Fans Should Know and Do Before They Die. Clearly, his Mets acumen as well as baseball acumen will fit in perfectly over the course of the episode.
Today, we will discuss the winning road trip that “propelled” the team to an overall winning record of 8-7 going into a tough home stretch against the Braves, the Cardinals and the Marlins. We will also discuss the 1969 season with no one in the team’s history to ever wear the number on their uniform.
So, join us for the Metsian discussion LIVE AT 6PM ET on the latest edition of the Rising Apple Report!
