Great Moments In Baseball History- Tommie Agee- Game 3 1969 World Series. As an eight year old baseball fan- I was watching my 3rd World Series. My team was the Pirates but since they didn’t make the playoffs I had to have a team to root for and it was easy to pick The Miracle Mets. A team that in their history had never finished above-next to last place won the NL East and beat the Atlanta Braves to win the NL – and went on to face the mighty Baltimore Orioles in the World Series.
Yesterday I featured the great catch that Ron Swoboda made in Game 4 of the World Series. With that series very much on my mind today- Tommie Agee- and his great Game 3- a home run and two fantastic catches.
