Happy # 74 to Ron Swoboda



We wish happy birthday to Ron Swoboda who was born in Baltimore on this day in 1944 .    He came up with the Mets in 1965 and showed power as a young hitter with 19 Hrs and 50 RBI in his rookie year.   Ron never came close to that number again.

Swoboda's place in baseball history was game 4 of the 1969 World Series against Baltimore.  He made an unbelievable catch on a line drive by Brooks Robinson.    The Mets went on to win the Series:
