Answers already? Yup. Sharp-eyed readers Chris D’Orso of Sound Beach and Walter Harvey of Highland Mills are our winners of the 1986 World Series Game Six DVD quiz, brought to us by MLB Productions. They knew:
1) The three former Mets who became All-Stars with the Red Sox were Felix Mantilla (1965), Jeff Reardon (1991) and Carl Everett (2000).
2) The three future Mets who had been All-Stars with the Red Sox were Jimmy Piersall (1954 & 1956), Eddie Bressoud (1964), Mo Vaughn (1995-1996 & 1998), Pedro Martinez (1998-2000 & 2002), Jose Offerman (1999) and Jason Bay (2009). Pedro was named to the National League All-Stars as a Met in 2005 and 2006. (Jerry Moses, a Red Sox All-Star in 1970, was promoted to the Mets’ active roster in 1975 but never got into a game as a Met.)
Congratulations to Chris and Walter. Thanks to all who played. Stay tuned, as we’ll have one more quiz with another Amazin’ prize from MLB Productions early next week.
