He only made one of the most famous catches in World Series history.

Never really known for his defense, Ron Swoboda made a diving catch in Game 4 of the 1969 World Series – a sinking line drive off the bat of Orioles great Brooks Robinson – that left Mets fans even more convinced that their team was on its way to beating Baltimore.

Ron has just released a new book, Here’s the Catch: A Memoir of the Miracle Mets & More, and called into the WDHA Morning Jolt to talk with Jim Monaghan and John Hodorovych.
