Talk About Your Quickie Quizzes

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 [1], 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.
