  • Paints a picture of Mets history

This Game of My Life book takes a personal look at the most significant moments of the Mets’ best and most loved players, from journeymen to superstars. Their most unforgettable games make a picture of Mets history. The franchise changed from a failing (though loved) expansion team in 1962 to World Series Champions in 1969 and 1986 and then back to the bottom before meeting the Yankees in the 2000 Subway Series. After that, they changed again into the current and very promising team.

Ron Swoboda, Wally Backman, Edgardo Alfonzo, Bobby Jones, and more describe their thrilling moments and paint a picture of the Mets based on their favorite memories of their time on the team. Current catcher Travis d’Arnaud leaves readers with his thoughts on his young career with the Mets, and journalist Michael Garry shares his perspective on this well-loved team.
