MOOKIE Life, Baseball, and the '86 Mets

by | Read by Ruffin Prentiss III

Biography & Memoir • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

One of the most iconic moments in World Series history is the famous grounder that dribbled between Bill Buckner’s legs in the 1986 Game Six, Mets vs. Red Sox. The man who hit that ball—Met Mookie Wilson—tells his story here. Ruffin Prentiss delivers a clear narration, using an energetic tone and perfect diction to describe Wilson’s life on and off the field. Prentiss does his best with an excited tone, which salvages the book’s sometimes staid but honest approach. He keeps listeners interested with his energy as he describes Wilson—his love of baseball, his perceptions of slights by the Mets in his coaching days, and his opinions of teammates.
