Podcast: Vic Black

Vic Black’s time in New York was rewarding, but way too short. Over two seasons — 2013 and 2014 — and 56 appearances with the Mets he compiled a 2.83 ERA.

We had the opportunity to catch up with Black from his hometown in Amarillo, Texas. He discusses growing up and not having a lot of interest in baseball, how that changed, getting drafted and eventually traded to New York and pitching on the biggest stage in the world.

Plus, since he walked away from the game after the 2018 season, Black has begun a burgeoning business teaching and mentoring young pitchers. You can find him on Facebook and Instagram @thearmdoc.

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.
