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.

  1. In April 1969, Tommie Agee also hit the longest home run in Shea Stadium history into the left field upper deck. One of the things I miss about Shea is the marker the Mets had painted in the upper deck.

  2. I’ve never looked it up but I wonder what the odds where in Vegas for Baltimore to win? I wish I could get the complete series…I’m sure it’s out there.

  3. Ed Short, who was the GM of the White Sox who traded Agee and Al Weis to the Mets for Tommy Davis, Fat Jack Fisher, and a couple of AAAA players (too good for AAA, not good enough for the majors), after trading J. C. Martin to the Mets for Ken Boyer and Sandy Alomar (who he then traded for Bobby Knoop), has to have been the biggest moron in Major League history. All I can figure was that Arthur Allyn (who owned the Sox) was in a hurry to sell to Bud Selig and told Short to make those trades.

    • Those were trades-especially getting Agee- the Mets don’t win without. Pretty bad deals for the White Sox– Spec Richardson in the 1970’s made a lot of bad trades for the Astros also – the big one being trading Joe Morgan to the Reds.
