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.
