The May 14th Note

September 23, 2022

12 ‘offs teams, expanded and sold out/no playoff games for tied ‘offs spots 2022 baseball, I think has there 6, one eighth “div” winners, 5 almost certain and only the Mets /Braves still unsettled (even there the Mets up one and a half with the tiebreaker are huge favorites).

There will be details and notes but today a quick foray back to Sunday May 14th’s, 5 years apart in 1967 and 1972.

In ’67 the great Mickey Mantle hit his 500th home run in a game vs the Baltimore Orioles.

5 years later on another Sunday May 14th, another great (sorry New York Giants Preservation Society members who call Willie, a player I truly love, the greatest of all–that goes to Babe Ruth and also Dave McNally and Jim Mason hit more World Series HR’s than the great Willie) Willie Mays in his first game as a New York Mets player, hit a home run.

The 5 div winners in order of record are the Dodgers, Astros, Yankees, Cardinals and Guardians nee Indians. The Mets/Braves winner will be the N.L. 2 seed.
