The Miracle Mets Of 1969. Baseball's First Cinderella Team In History

Ms. Clones

"Baseball's First Cinderella Team In History" LOL! No freakin' way. For example, look up the story of the 1914 Boston Braves. They were in last place on July 18th and went on to win the World Series. Now that's a miracle. https://www.bostonglobe.com/sports/2014/08/16/boston-braves-produced-miracle-years-ago/8tGdT0QplqKyBfN9JcgtXO/story.html


I would disagree about the Mets being the FIRST Cinderella team. There were others. But after seven seasons of futility, it all came together. Particularly the outstanding pitching. Led by Tom Seaver and Jerry Koosman, with Tug McGraw and Nolan Ryan coming out of the bullpen, they were one of only two NL teams with a season ERA of less than 3.0. That 100 win season was not a fluke, they earned it by playing great baseball.
