MCMLXIX-"It's One Small Step For Man-One Giant Leap For Mankind"

No, it isn't because The NY Mets won the World Series, though it was a major story:

You see, Mr Neil Armstrong set foot on Ralph Kramden's favorite place, a place he kept offering to send his wife, Alice to, The Moon, on Sunday, July 20th, 1969. The Mets split a Doubleheader with Montreal, that day, in Montreal;

Major League Baseball premiered in the Flesh, in Canada. The 1st Sacrifice Bunt in the History of MLB in Canada, was done in Jarry Park, by that dude, The St. Louis Cardinals Catcher, known to us as the guy who wouldn't shut up, and won't on All Star Game Coverage, on FOX;

I was at Montreal's 1st Game in 1969. The Montreal Expos began life and ended as the Expos, at Shea Stadium, before becoming the Washington Nationals;

The Chicago Cubs had an 8.5 Game Lead in the NL East. The Mets won it all, defeating the Baltimore Orioles in 5 Games;

Baseball had changed, as the New League Championship Series Format, was now in effect. DFYankees were out of it. I also went to see my 1st Game in a place called "The Toilet", also known as Yankee Stadium I. The Bleacher Creatures did not exist yet;

Later!
