According to a story in today’s New York Post, Ed Kranepool is still searching for a kidney donor. The Post reported, “He was set for a kidney transplant in early January with a longtime friend being the donor, but plans fell through because of a health issue with the donor.”
“You have to keep positive, because what’s the alternative? There’s no reason to give up. Life is fun. Life is good. I’ll be doing a lot of work whether I get one or not, get a lot of visibility for organ donors. You try to give back. Take one day at a time.’’
National League baseball in New York was redefined on March 6, 1961 when the New York Metropolitan Baseball Club Inc. formally received a certificate of membership from leave president Warren Giles. Of the 30 Major League Baseball clubs today, the case could be made that no other team has a more compelling franchise history than the New York Mets. From Casey Stengel to Yogi Berra, Marv Throneberry to Tom Seaver, Willie Mays, Tug McGraw, Darryl Strawberry, Dwight Gooden, Keith Hernandez, Bobby Valentine, Pedro Martinez and Matt Harvey, the Mets are loaded with character(s). Then there are the Amazin’ seasons — 1962, 1969, 1973, 1986, 2000, 2006-2008 and 2015 — full of miracles, joy, hope and heartbreak. Mets Rewind is designed for that purpose: To share team history in a distinct and entertaining format. We hope you — the baseball fan — enjoy the content. We encourage you to share your memories.
