A Franchise First: Mets World Series Win
The Mets pulled out a close 2-1 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on the road in Game 2 of the 1969 World Series. It was the Mets’ first WS win in franchise history. Al Weis was the game’s hero with an RBI single in the top of the 9th to give the Mets the one-run lead, and eventually the game.
