Oh boy. If you bleed orange and blue, this is gold!
Ed Kranepool — a member of the 1969 Miracle Mets and one of the most treasured players in the franchise’s 57-year history — will speak Thursday, Oct. 10, at Bayport-Blue Point Public Library in Blue Point.
From 7-8:30 p.m., “Steady Eddie” will recount his favorite memories from a 17-year Major League Baseball career that was spent entirely playing in Queens for the Amazin’s. Considering the popularity of the retired first-baseman, pre-registration is required for attendance. You can take care of that by clicking here.
A 1990-inductee into the New York Mets Hall of Fame, Kranepool, 74, ranks third on the all-time Mets hit list. He lives in Old Westbury.
Watch Kranepool go deep during the 1969 World Series.
The Bayport-Blue Point Public Library is located at 203 Blue Point Ave. in Blue Point.
