An evening pause: For those who remember the 1969 Miracle Mets (Happy birthday Lloyd!), here is a tribute compilation of newsclips, celebrating Tom Seaver’s Hall of Fame career. Ya gotta believe! (Though Tug McGraw said it, it was Seaver more than anyone else who made it happen.)

    Baseball was great in 1969.
    It was my first full season of following the game.
    I had no idea that I was bearing witness to an unrepeatable and life changing experience as a fan.

    Bob and I probably went to 20 games at Shea that year at $2.50 a throw—–it amounted to real money!
    The highlight, of course, was being at the game on September 24th when they clinched the division title.

    What with the moon landing and all on July 20, New York was a heavenly place that year
