The team that's lived a life like no other finally receives the epic retelling it deserves. From the author of the beloved Mets fan memoir FAITH AND FEAR IN FLUSHING comes THE HAPPIEST RECAP, a four-volume history of the New York Mets wherein the half-century saga of baseball's m...ost Amazin' franchise unfolds through its 500 biggest, best and most magnificent on-field triumphs. First Base, the series' initial volume, commences with the birth of the Metsies in 1962, follows every step of the path that leads to their Miracle championship of 1969 and guides us through the You Gotta Believe drama of 1973. In between, we experience the Met wins in which records were set, legends were created and moments that will last forever first saw light. Relive the stories you know with a new twist. Discover the stories you've never heard. Feel once more the Met presence of Casey Stengel, Gil Hodges and Bob Murphy. Thrill to the exploits of Tom Seaver, Willie Mays and Tug McGraw. Spend a few minutes, too, with the Hooks and the Harknesses, the Hunts and the Hickmans, the MacKenzies and the Millers and the Ribants, Rustecks and Rohrs. Unlike most team histories, THE HAPPIEST RECAP views the 50-year journey of the New York Mets the way its most loving and loyal fans have: relishing all the joyous Met wins and marveling at all the memorable Met personalities.
