It’s OK For New York Mets To Embrace Their Past
It’s OK For New York Mets To Embrace Their Past
On Saturday, 65 former New York Mets took the field at Citi Field in Queens. For some of them, like Steve Dillon, who pitched 3 games for the Amazin's in 1963-64, it was more than five decades since they put on their uniform for an official event. For others, like friend of The Drive with Charlie & Dan, Daniel Murphy, who retired in two seasons ago, they look like they could play later in the day against the Rockies and contribute. The event was as much fun for the players as it was for the fans to see their heroes of yesteryear.

Old Timer's Day began for the New York Mets in the magical year of 1969. Good things happened that year, including their "Amazin" World Championship, amongst a myriad of major world events. The scrooge-like former Mets owners, Fred Wilpon and Saul Katz killed the beloved event in 1994. They were probably tired of hearing former Mets players mock their ownership's lack of baseball knowledge...but that's a story for another day. Old Timer's Day is back and it's Saturday at Citi Field.

2015 New York Mets Playoff Hero Goes Deep on The Drive
2015 was a special year for the New York Mets. Prior to that, the Amazin's had not reached the World Series since 2000, when they lost in 5 games to the Yankees. Fans of the blue & orange were starved for post-season play. One player almost singlehandedly carried New York to their first National League Championship title since the turn of the century and he was nice enough to join The Drive with Charlie & Dan on Tuesday.
