Hosts Kelly Burdick and Christina Knott return to the pages of history for stories that still matter today.

Oct 13, 2019

Fifty years ago, Mets fans in Watertown predicted what few statisticians would. One of the worst teams in baseball rocketed to the top, reaching and then dominating the 1969 World Series.

Dennis O'Brien joins Christina and Kelly to talk about the Miracle Mets and how the 1969 made sports history in a way almost no one saw coming.
