METS REWIND PODCAST: GARY MYERS

Gary Myers has been a NFL reporters since 1978. He has written for the New York Daily News, HBO’s “Inside the NFL,” the Dallas Morning News, Sports Illustrated and The Athletic. 

I know what you’re thinking: What’s an NFL reporter doing a New York Mets podcast?

Good question.

Myers grew up in Queens and has been a Mets fan since the team’s inception in 1962. He attended hundreds of games as a fan, a vendor and a part-time summer employee. As a teenager he became a Shea Stadium vendor. When he started college he served as a production assistant for the iconic Mets post-game show, Kiner’s Korner, hosted by Hall of Famer Ralph Kiner. On this episode of the Mets rewind podcast, Myers shares his memories of Shea, how it deepened his relationship with his father and his experience working at the park.

When Shea Stadium was demolished Myers wrote about his passion for the team, how it deepened his relationship with his father and what the ballpark meant to him, personally. The story can be found in the Daily News archives. It’s poignant, personal and a lot of fun.

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.
