Saddened to hear of the loss of Ed Charles. Mr. Charles was a character of the game and will be missed by every Mets fan who ever was.
In 1968, he led the Mets in home runs with 15.
On September 24, 1969, Ed Homered off Steve Carlton in the N.L. division clincher. This was the last home run in his 8 year career.
Meh, sometimes I get a little over dramatic with the captions. Great stop though.
I had to show the ball getting by Brooks.
Ed played for the Mets from 1967 to 1969 and ended his career on a high note, contributing to and celebrating the Mets 1969 World Series win.
I will never forget his smiling jubilation at becoming a world champion.
