Four teams, 175 games, 3,738,546 fans one stadium. If 1975 wasn't the most successful year in New York sports and it wasn't then it was certainly one of the oddest. For that one crazy season, all four New York teams the Mets, Jets, Yankees, and Giants called Shea Stadium home. When Shea was Home includes interviews with the stadium's former head groundskeeper, the legendary Pete Flynn, as well as Jerry Koosman, Bud Harrelson and Ed Kranepool of the Mets, Giants owner John Mara, Rich Caster of the Jets, former Super Bowl MVP quarterback Doug Williams, who played that year at Shea for Grambling, and many more! This well-written narrative includes information about the stadium, the teams, the players, how the teams coexisted, and how they didn't. When Shea was Home takes New York sports fans on a unique trip down memory lane, offering context on the national and local history and culture of the time. It is perfect for the avid New York sports aficionado regardless of team allegiance! Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Sports Publishing imprint, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in sports books about baseball, pro football, college football, pro and college basketball, hockey, or soccer, we have a book about your sport or your team.
