BATTER UP FOR THE 1969 METS

BATTER UP FOR THE 1969 METS

I just heard about this event, and it sounds like a great time for a very worthy cause. Old time Mets baseball, and a night out with your fellow die hards, while raising money for the fight against prostate cancer. 

I spoke with Ed Randall this morning, and the SVA Theatre sounds like a perfect intimate venue for this event. The space has less than 500 seats, so this live "Talking Baseball" panel with some of the Mets all time greats will be an absolute treat to attend. 

Take part in the MVP reception and mingle with the champs over some drinks and food, or snag a ticket for just the theatre. 

A word from Ed Randall - Founder and CEO of FANS FOR THE CURE:

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be part of a championship team? Here is your opportunity to get the inside scoop from men who were on the field and contributed to one of the greatest upsets in World Series history.

On October 21, FANS for the CURE will host the Miracle Mets 50th Anniversary Celebration at the SVA Theatre in New York City. The event will feature “Talking Baseball,” a lively conversation with ‘69 Miracle Mets teammates Cleon Jones, Ed Kranepool, Art Shamsky, and Ron Swoboda, moderated by WFAN Radio Host and FANS for the CURE founder Ed Randall. Special remarks will be delivered by former New York Mets infielder and current Brooklyn Cyclones manager Edgardo Alfonzo. There is also an option to participate in a fun “warm-up” to the evening and mingle with these baseball greats in an exclusive MVP reception.

I am sending you the invitation to this special event (attached) with the hope that you will provide sponsorship or other support. Your participation will help FANS for the CURE continue to save men’s lives by promoting the early detection and treatment of prostate cancer and by supporting prostate cancer research.

Should you purchase a bloc of tickets and be unable to fill the seats, we will do so with FDNY, NYPD and/or military service members.

About one in 9 men in the United States will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime, which means most people know someone - a grandfather, father, uncle, brother, or friend - who has been diagnosed with the disease. This year, an estimated 31,620 men will die of prostate cancer and more than 174,600 new cases are expected to be diagnosed. FANS is determined to help change these statistics, and we hope you will join us in the fight against prostate cancer.

We look forward to hearing from you as we prepare for this incredible evening.  If you have any questions, please reach out to us at 212-625-1025 or events@fansforthecure.org.

Thank you for your consideration of this invitation.

- Ed

ICYMI, and you probably did, "Seaver" premiered in the heart of NFL Sunday. It was a look back at his greatest hits and leaves you with mixed emotions on how the Mets could've f----ed up their relationship with Seaver...twice.

The time is now to win, and you can’t risk having another manager learning on the fly holding them back. The Mets can’t miss with this hire and Beltran has to be on the high-risk list.
