Big League Player Experience

May 9, 2008 - One feature of our baseball road trips that is almost always the highlight is when we bring in former MLB players for our Big League Playerdescribe the image Experience. This baseball trip was no different. Joining us in New York was Art Shamsky, member of the '69 Miracle Mets team that won the World Series just a few years after the franchise was created. Here is Art (in the middle) pictured with a couple of our guests.

Art shared stories of breaking into the big leagues (in the minor leagues they traveled between cities in station wagons with 8 guys per car, 2 of them facing backwards!), related his experience as a player during the 60's and 70's, and discussed issues relevant to baseball today. Our guests on this small group tour were able to ask questions of Art across many different topics as well as receive autographs and take pictures with Art.
