Podcast: Tom Gamboa

Tom Gamboa is what we call in the baseball world “a lifer.”

He has played the game, coached, scouted and managed baseball teams for 44 years, before officially retiring from the game after the 2016 season. Gamboa’s last managerial job was in 2014 with the Brooklyn Cyclones, the Class A affiliate of the New York Mets. During his three-year stint at Brooklyn, he managed current Mets Michael Conforto, Amed Rosario and Tomas Nido.

On the latest episode of The Mets Rewind Podcast, Gamboa describes what he saw early in the development of these three players, plus his cameo in Moneyball, the bizarre incident in 2002 when he was attacked by a father/son while coaching first base for the Kansas City Royals, his three passions in life: Faith, Family and Friends (make that five, baseball and golf) and the day his life changed: April 25, 2019.

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.
