A member of the Miracle Mets, Art Shamsky was a key player in New York’s run to the 1969 World Series. Before the season, Shamsky suffered a back injury and went on the disabled list before rehabbing with the Triple-A Tidewater Tides. He came back to the Mets as a platoon outfielder, batting .300 with 14 home runs in 100 regular-season games. He also played in six postseason outings. After winning a World Series ring, Shamsky stayed in New York until 1971.
