Miracle Region: (1) Tom Seaver vs. (16) Ron Swoboda
(1) Tom Seaver – Seaver is dubbed The Franchise for taking the team from a losing franchise to World Series winners. He holds nearly every pitching record in team history, and he is considered to be, if not the greatest, among the greatest right-handed pitchers in Major League history. He was the first Mets player to have his number retired, and he was the first Mets player to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. To date, he is the starting pitcher with the highest percent of the vote.
(16) Ron Swoboda – Even with his being nicknamed “Rocky” due to his adventures in the outfield, Swoboda arguably has the best defensive play in Mets history with his full out dive robbing Brooks Robinson of a key hit in Game 4 of the World Series.
