Greg Prince discovered the Mets when he was 6, during the magical summer of 1969. He is a Long Island-based writer, editor and communications consultant. Contact him here.

Jason Fry is a Brooklyn writer whose first memories include his mom leaping up and down cheering for Rusty Staub. Check out his other writing here.

Rocky Road

Straight from his sprawling silhouette above the Right Field gate, it’s 1969 World Series Game Four defender extraordinaire Ron Swoboda out in center Sunday. The man they called Rocky was re-meeting and greeting the Fantasy Campers he coached earlier this year, chief among them, for our purposes, No. 17, Keith Hernandez Jeff Hysen. Jeff — who shared his experiences with FAFIF in January and his extra ticket with me yesterday — is finishing his Amazin’ journey with a day of baseball at Citi Field tomorrow with the other campers. I’d say “have fun!” but I think those instructions would be superfluous.

    Hi Greg,
    Back in 1965 when I was just 14 years old, I always wanted to be like Ron Swoboda.
    Seeing he has rounded out slightly since his playing days I can now say with pride that 44 years later I indeed got my wish.
