The South Florida SABR Chapter and Books and Books are pleased to announce Art Shamsky, one of the 1969 World Series champion "Miracle" New York Mets (Miracle Mets). Mr. Shamsky will be introducing his new book, After the Miracle: The Brotherhood of the '69 Mets.

Nicknamed "Sham" and "Smasher," is a former Major League Baseball player. He played right field, left field, and first base from 1965 to 1972 for the Cincinnati Reds, New York Mets, Chicago Cubs, and Oakland Athletics. He tied a major league record by homering in four consecutive at bats in 1966. He was an integral player on the 1969 World Champion Miracle Mets, batting .300 with 14 home runs (both second on the team) while platooning, and then hitting .538 in the post-season batting cleanup.

It promises to be a great afternoon. Join Art in celebrating the 50th year of the World champion 1969 NY "Miracle" Mets. All baseball fans are welcome to attend. See you there!
