Hall of Famer Carter was the heart and soul of the World Series champions that season, starting the two-out rally that won game 6 of the World Series in the bottom of the 10th inning.
Willie then took up a position as a part-time coach with the Mets, and this is the jersey that he wore at Shea in 1978, the year before he was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

 Orel's Back With The Club? I Wish I Still Cared
Hershiser's historic performance in the last eight weeks of the 1988 season carried the Dodgers to the Western Division title, a seven-game NLCS triumph over a vastly superior New York Mets team, and an improbable five-game World Series victory over the mighty Oakland A's.
Orel Hershiser did not allow a run to score from the end of August until the 8th inning of Game 1 of the 1988 NLCS against New York, a span of 67 consecutive innings, including a record 59 in the regular season.
Orel Hershiser is a bright light in the clubhouse and a mature, stable influential character to have around young players.

 Bob Murphy (1924-2004)
Prior to coming to the Mets, Murphy had worked with the Boston Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles from 1954-1961, so this was his shot at the big time in New York.
Bob Murphy would never call another Mets World Championship as their dream in 1988 fell short in the NLCS, which was followed by another prolonged period of losing in the 90s.
His name was Bob Murphy, who was joined by Lindsay Nelson, and Ralph Kiner as the trio whose voices would accompany Mets baseball to fans who at first referred to the team as the "lovable losers" as they lost 120 games that first season.

 The Japan Times Online
Various Central and Pacific League teams, including the Yomiuri Giants, played games in Kokura between 1979 and 1988, and the park was always a stop on postseason tours by visiting major league teams such as the Baltimore Orioles (1971), New York Mets (1974) and Cincinnati Reds (1978).
The Hawks, after moving from Osaka to Fukuoka in 1989, picked up the northern Kyushu tradition of playing a good chunk of their home schedule at Kokura but, after Fukuoka Dome was opened in 1993, Daiei games in Kitakyushu were limited to five per season; one each against the other Pacific League teams.
The Nishitetsu (Fukuoka) Lions played several Pacific League games there each season during the 1960s and through 1972, as did the Taiheiyo Club (1973-1976) and Crown Lighter Lions (1977-1978) until the team was sold to Seibu and moved to Saitama Prefecture in 1979.

 Juan Samuel BaseballLibrary.com
Samuel was traded to the Mets for Len Dykstra and Roger McDowell in mid-1989 and became New York's leadoff hitter and centerfielder.
The Phillies moved the strikeout-prone Samuel (at least 141 in each of his six ML seasons through 1988) from the leadoff spot and in 1988 switched him to the outfield, where his speed partially compensated for bad fly-ball judgment.
Samuel's best offensive season was 1987, when he hit.272 with 28 HR, 100 RBI, 113 runs, 35 stolen bases, and a NL-high 15 triples.
