A Magic Summer

The Amazin' Story of the 1969 New York Mets

A Magic Summer tells of that remarkable season by chronicling the major events as viewed twenty years later. Interviews conducted twenty years after with members of the team—Seaver, Ryan, McGraw, and others—provide immediacy and, with that, fascinating updates and insights. This is a unique record and celebration of a season that Mets fans—and all baseball fans—will not soon forget.
