The year was a good one for New York, with both Major League Baseball teams winning their respective divisions and becoming the shining stars of their leagues with wins, but the 2006 baseball season was more than just good for the Mets—it was amazing. This collection of anecdotes and insights goes onto the field, into the clubhouse, and behind the scenes to chronicle the historic summer of baseball in New York, talking with the stars and managers Willie Randolph and Omar Minaya about their roles in the success. Led by All-Stars, persevering through injuries, and driven by a potent offense, the team brought pride to their fans and the National League with a whirlwind climb to the top. Whatever the outcome after all was said and done, the book accurately captures the excitement and enthusiasm of the New York Mets in a record-setting season that will never be forgotten.
