Coming on the heels of his 65th birthday, we look at the distinguished career of Mets legend Mookie Wilson. In this episode, we check out Mookie’s pop culture cameos on Seinfeld and Sesame Street, explore his early days with the Mets, and analyze the infamy of Game 6 of the 1986 World Series. We also share memories of the man he was traded for in 1989, his induction into the Mets Hall of Fame in 1996 and his run as first base coach for several Mets teams of the 90s and 2000s.
Lastly, we debate his standing in Mets history and make a plea to Steve Cohen to honor #1 in some fashion at CitiField. As always, we start the podcast with reflecting on the week that was in Mets land.
