Art Shamsky’s Bio
Art Shamsky was a professional baseball player for 13 years. Art was a major part of the ’1969′ Miracle Mets that won the World Championship defeating the Baltimore Orioles. Art’s bat is in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY for hitting four consecutive home runs in four at-bats when he began his career playing for the Cincinnati Reds before being traded to the Mets.
“The Magnificent Seasons had been on my mind for a long time. I wrote about these 3 teams, the Jets, Mets, and Knicks, all from New York City, and who ironically all won for the first time in their franchise history, because they each have etched their place in history.”
