Uniform & Team History
The 1969 Miracle Mets shocked the Baltimore Orioles in the World Series for the their first championship. Hall of Famer Tom Seaver, who won 25 games for the ’69 Mets, closed out his career with the Red Sox in 1986.
Oldtime Game History
Beginning with the 2002 Oldtime Baseball Game, American flags were added to the back of our throwback uniforms in memory of the victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. This uniform was worn in the 2002 game by Northeastern University infielder Jamie Williams, whose brother Kevin was among those killed at the World Trade Center. In Kevin’s memory the Williams family established the Kevin Williams Memorial Fund, to which the Oldtime Baseball Game sent a donation. And, yes, Jamie chose this uniform because he grew up a Mets fan.
Matt Noone, the longtime baseball coach at Babson College who also happens to the left-handed batting-practice pitcher for the Red Sox, has worn this uniform as an Oldtime Baseball Game coach in 2007, ’11-12, ’15 and ’19.
Mike Dicato of UMass/Amherst, who wore it in 2006, played for the independent minor-league Worcester Tornadoes in 2012.
