Cleaning Out Junk Unearths A Forgotten Mets Moment

Having been a Mets fan now entering my 42 year, I am constantly remembering the bad old days of sub .500 baseball, the near misses of 1973, 1988, 2006, 2007, and 2008, and the wonderful run of 1986. I am also fortunate enough to remember my youth listening to Lindsey Nelson, Bob Murphy and Ralph Kiner keep a young boys interest whether on TV or radio. With the final piece of the Mets Trinity

Phil Rizzuto belonged to the Yankees but Ralph Kiner belonged to the Mets. Teamed up with Lindsey Nelson and Bob Murphy, he was with the Mets since the beginning. He always had a story about one of the game’s greats and could...

Life Under the Big Top

Mets broadcast teams then and now

Being in a major media market the Mets have always been fairly lucky to have fairly good broadcasters doing color and play by play of their games.  Thought it might be fun to compare the classic trio of Lindsey Nelson, Bob Murphy and Ralph Kiner with today’s trio of leads: Gary Cohen, Ron Darling and Keith Hernandez. Lindsey Nelson was the first lead broadcaster for the Mets. ...

Mets radio homes through the years

With the end of the Mets’ partnership with WFAN this week, it might be fun to crank up the old history machine, and take a stroll through radio flagship stations of the past.
