Ron Swoboda — Here’s the Catch.

Ex-New York Met and 1969 World Series hero Ron Swoboda will be signing copies of his book Here’s the Catch: A Memoir of the Miracle Mets and More at BookEnds in Ridgewood, New Jersey, on Monday, July 1st at 6:00 p.m.

If you’re a true Mets fan, you can’t help but remember Swoboda’s spectacular, game-saving catch of Brooks Robinson’s line drive in the ninth inning of Game 4 of the World Series against the Baltimore Orioles. Swoboda also had an RBI that clinched the Series victory.

In this intelligent, funny, insightful, page-turning memoir, which is as self-deprecating as a lifetime .249 hitter has to be, the former right fielder tells the story of that magical year nearly game by game, revealing his struggles, his triumphs and what life was like for an every day, every man type of player, even when skipper Gil Hodges platooned him the outfield.

Swoboda shows what it took to make one of the worst teams in baseball and what it was like to leave as one of the best.

If you’re unable to attend the appearance, you can purchase a copy @Here’s the Catch: A Memoir of the Miracle Mets and More
