Link: Kranepool gets donor

Former New York Mets first baseman Ed Kranepool is due to get a new kidney next month. Kranepool said the kidney transplant is coming from an anonymous donor.

“I’m nervous, but also ecstatic. It’s very exhilarating, no question about it. It’s lifesaving. But I am nervous. Nothing is a problem until there’s a problem. I have not met the donor as of today. I don’t know whether I will or not. It’s up to the hospital and to the donor as to whether he wants to meet. I go for my final workup pre-ops on Thursday. There is a chance I’ll meet the donor on Thursday. All of us might be together on Thursday. I don’t know if it’s a guy or a woman, all I know it’s an AB organ. It’s a perfect match.’’

Mets Rewind
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.
