It’s a miracle! The Mets pulled off the seemingly impossible with their first World Series title in franchise history. Fans in Shea Stadium field level boxes cheered the Mets to victory during Game 5 of the 1969 World Series, a 5-3 win over the Baltimore Orioles to seal the championship. Donn Clendenon, who hit a home run in the game, would be named Series MVP.
