Of special note is the final chapter, which uses the story of an aging Gil Hodges (then the Mets first baseman), to ramble a bit about the passing of time, the story of the Dodgers and the Giants leaving New York and why it felt so good to get a National League team back in the city, and the way television has changed everything about the world Jimmy Breslin grew up in. Simply a tremendously well written and moving chapter and the best thing in the book.
The tells about the 1962 Mets Season but much more. It can be best described as a Early 1960’s period piece of New York. Great book that is both informative and funny. I greatly recommend this book for people whether they’re sports fans or not.
