Welcome to Amazin’ Avenue in Conversation, a new podcast from Amazin’ Avenue where we invite interesting people on the show to talk about themselves, the Mets, and more.

This week, we welcome Ron Swoboda onto the show. Ron was a member of the 1969 Miracle Mets, and was responsible for a dramatic catch in game 4 of the World Series, which kept the game tied and allowed the Mets to come back and win in the 10th inning. That play provides the title for Ron’s new memoir, Here’s the Catch, which went on sale on June 11th.

Ron’s book is available now via Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or wherever else you get books.

Make sure to catch Ron at the 1969 anniversary weekend at the end of this month at Citi Field. You can also find him on Facebook and Instagram.

You can listen or subscribe to 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, Spotify, or listen to the embedded player below.
