Welcome to UnforMETable, a new show from Amazin’ Avenue that looks back on less heralded, more obscure, but quintessential Mets players from the past

This week, Rob Wolff travels back in time to the franchise’s inaugural season of 1962 to take a look at a pitcher with a very unique nickname who spent the tail end of a solid major league career with Casey’s fabled ‘62 squad. Learn about the historic World Series he participated in, his thoughts on his final days with the Mets, and his at least equally notable post-baseball career.

As always, you can listen or subscribe to this and all of our wonderful Amazin’ Avenue Audio podcasts through Apple Podcasts, where we encourage you to leave a review if you enjoy the show. It really helps! And you can find us on the Stitcher app, or listen through the embedded player below.
