‘Baseball as It Was’ Episode #34: Heather Quinlan

The 1986 Mets didn’t just dominate the major league competition. They ruled New York City in a way that hasn’t been matched since.

Filmmaker Heather Quinlan is in the late stages of developing a documentary on this team that won 108 games with brash and bravado and would go on to capture the World Series over the Boston Red Sox with a remarkable comeback spirit.

For more on the project, including interview clips with Dwight Gooden, Mookie Wilson, Bill Buckner, Lenny Dykstra, and Kevin Mitchell, go to http://86metsmovie.com.

Part of this episode also features sound from the music video “Let’s Go Mets,” created in 1986 by Shelly Palmer and available on iTunes.
