1969: Amazin' to Miraculous
by Steve Ehresman
From Vietnam, to Woodstock, to the Moon, 1969 was a year of historic events. Major League Baseball produced its own historical drama when Casey Stengel's Amazin' Mets transformed into Gil Hodges' Miracle Mets and rocked the baseball world by capturing the World Series. In baseball's first season of divisional play, the New York Mets, behind the sensational pitching of Cy Young winner Tom Seaver, brushed past the Chicago Cubs of Ernie Banks, Ron Santo, Billy Williams and Ferguson Jenkins; eliminated the Atlanta Braves of Orlando Cepeda, Hank Aaron, and Phil Niekro; and upset the American League Champion Baltimore Orioles of Brooks Robinson, Frank Robinson, and Jim Palmer.
In addition to the World Series surprise by the Mets, 1969 featured the home run slugging of MVPs Willie McCovey and Harmon Killebrew, the batting artistry of Pete Rose and Rod Carew, the mound mastery of Denny McClain and Mike Cuellar, and the base running larceny of Lou Brock and Tommy Harper.
While the stars compiled sterling statistics, Major League Baseball debuted four expansion teams: the Montreal Expos and the San Diego Padres in the National League and the Kansas City Royals and the Seattle Pilots in the American League.
