Book Synopsis
This book is the first of a two-volume project. It details personal remembrances of the first twenty-five seasons of the Mets. Many quirky facts and a few editorial observations are made, sometimes with a New Yorker's sardonic sense of humor. Indeed, although the author has not lived in the state of his birth since 2003, and has spent perhaps a third of his sixty years away from the area, he will always be a New Yorker with a New Yorker's sense of humor. This book endeavors to reflect that humor.

Volume II will cover the years between 1987 and 2002 in considerable detail, although this first volume concludes with observations on the state of the Mets in particular and of baseball in general in the ten years since he walked out of the now demolished Shea Stadium.

This book project retains the former book's intention to describe some of the innocence and the joy that was once the common experience at a baseball game, yes, even in New York at the Polo Grounds and Shea Stadium.
