477 thought on “Mookie: Life, Baseball, and the '86 Mets

  1. A good, not great book in the pantheon of other sports autobiographies It s what you expect and not much , which isn t to say it s bad, just status quo I m an athlete, I won a big game, this is what happened, this is how I got there, this is what happened after and this is what s happening now, intermingled with this is what I think about these things And that is that.


  2. Mookie, Keith Hernandez, Ron Darling, Tim Teufel shuffle Those were the guys I loved and rooted for MOOKIE MOOKIE when I was a seven year old New Yorker caught up in the whirlwind of Mets 1986 All these years later I still remember screaming like only a seven year old girl can when Mookie made it to first base in that unforgettable World Series Game 6 Mookie brings it all back in his bio A must read for anyone who still remembers that fever of 1986.



  3. So, the winning run is at second base with two out 3 and 2 to Mookie Wilson Little roller up along first BEHIND THE BAG IT GETS THROUGH BUCKNER HERE COMES KNIGHT, AND THE METS WIN IT This is Vin Scully s famous call on Mookie Wilson s most famous play and one of the most famous plays in baseball history Mookie Wilson was a center fielder for the New York Mets and Toronto Blue Jays While he is most remembered for the Bill Buckner play, but this book is a good book about his life other than that p [...]


  4. This was a quick, fun summer read that helped me relive my youth I remember the 86 Mets very fondly Their remarkable rise to the championship helped shape my youth and helped mold my world view that anything is possible I will never forget Roger MacDowell and the World Champions celebratory ticker tape parade Thanks for bringing it all back Mookie You were my Dad s favorite Met and I admired your hustle.



  5. The sub title of this book says it all Almost everything one would want to know about this iconic baseball player, the sport which was the passion of his life, and the fabulous 1986 team that won it all From the first pages a terrific brief Forward by Keith Hernandez, continuing with an equally brief Preface by Mookie wherein he states, among other things It is my hope that this book is really going to let people know that I have a life outside of baseball and that I am than just another pretty [...]


  6. Emotional MookieWhile Mookie Wilson will always hold a special place in Mets fans hearts, he comes across as whiner than winner in his recently published autobiography, Mookie Life, Baseball, and the 86 Mets co written with Erik Sherman.First, Mookie admits his bitterness towards Mets management for platooning him in the outfield during the 1980 s no surprise there Next he expresses his anger and sadness towards Straw and Doc for not capitalizing on their tremendous talent and potential Mets fa [...]


  7. First, if you are not a Mets fan, like me, read no further This book is strictly for us, particularly for those of us who saw and remember the 86 Mets Second,this book will bring back fond and fun memories of that year Mookie tells his version of that team His descriptions of the key games were good to read And his relationship with Bill Buckner is particularly engaging I need not explain this to people who obeyed Item 1 above Third, this book is surprising in a key way Mookie Wilson is a fan fa [...]


  8. I originally got this book because I am a fan of the 85 88 New York Mets I became a fan of baseball in 1988, and the Mets were my team then and remain my team Surprisingly, the stories about those seasons were not what made this book interesting to me, as this was the reason I got the book in the first place What I found most interesting, and what helped me appreciate Mookie and this book was his life after baseball, and his growth in his Christian faith His account of getting out of baseball an [...]


  9. I just received this book for Father s Day Sat back in the lounge chair and read it in one sitting First I have to say that I am a life long Met fan Second, Mookie is my second favorite Met of all time Behind Cleon Jones for you old timers So my review is probably higher due to my partiality for Mookie.The book starts out with the famous game six of the 1986 World Series Known as the Bill Buckner game Even though I remember that game so well, Mookie s description took me back and reminded me of [...]


  10. A good enough book and an important reminder that life is than a single moment Both Mookie Wilson and Bill Buckner have had richer lives than the slow roller up the first base line that they are enshrined in baseball memory for It is almost tragic that he was the first African American ballplayer on his college team all those years after Jackie, and it s worse but not surprising how Georgia s home fans treated him Mookie is a story of family values, lucky breaks, and the importance of life off [...]


  11. Saw this book at my local dollar store and probably wouldn t have purchased it otherwise Like many, I was not a fan of the 86 Mets I m glad I read this and realized what a man of character Mookie Wilson is It is possible to hold your standards and have people respect you for that very positive message And while Mookie s post playing days may not have gone the way he hoped, it is clear he is serving a greater good Good for him and good for anyone who reads his narrative.


  12. This is the standard 86 Mets story from Mookie s view The history is the same, and the stories the same as most already told Mookie complains a bit than I would have liked Nothing truly new learned No real insight offered.
