Tommie Agee’s Titanic Blast

Posted by JD on April 10, 2010

I was reminded of this nice feat by the BR Bullpen: on this date in 1969, Tommie Agee hit a titanic blast into the upper deck seats of Shea Stadium, a feat that was never matched (thanks to the Wikipedia, I learned that it was also his first multi-homer game). The marker placed in section 48 was, in my opinion, one of the coolest features of Shea: a direct connection to the 1969 Miracle Mets. That team was way before my time, but I always looked at the marker as a sort of time machine, a way to temporarily put myself in the shoes of the fans who were there that day to see a bit of Mets history.

Here’s to hoping that we all get to share in a similar experience at Citi Field. The sooner the better.
