<style type="text/css"><!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}--></style><strong>No origin story of the New York Mets is complete without Ed Kranepool.</strong><br /><br />The lefty first baseman known as &quot;Steady Eddie&quot; made his major-league debut at age 17 during the team&#39;s inaugural season and would eventually depart, nearly two decades later, with his name written throughout the franchise&#39;s record books.<br /><br />In this definitive autobiography, Kranepool shares a remarkable life story, including early years playing stickball in the streets of the Bronx, the growing pains the Mets endured as an expansion club, his offseasons working as a New York stockbroker, and of course the miracle 1969 season that ended in an unforgettable World Series victory.<br /><br />He also opens up about the personal miracle which came 50 years after that famous championship: a lifesaving kidney transplant made possible by a Mets fan donor. A month after the surgery, Kranepool threw out the first pitch at Citi Field and boldly offered his services as a pinch hitter. <br /><br /><strong>Affable, open, and brimming with knowledge of the game, this thoroughly New York tale will delight baseball fans in Queens and beyond.</strong>
