Mets fans gathered at a Flatlands watering hole to meet legendary slugger Mookie Wilson, who signed autographs and partied with the kids of some of his biggest fans!
“My father was a die-hard Mets fan and it was a very high honor,” said Ricky Zawacki, himself a diehard Mets fan.
The famous Mets center fielder — who signed a picture of himself for Zawacki, before enjoying his evening at Flatbush Avenue’s Bulls Eye Sports Pub — famously hit a ground ball that rolled through Boston Red Sox player Bill Buckner’s legs in the bottom of the 10th inning during Game 6 of the 1986 World Series, helping the Mets force a seventh game that they ultimately won to become champions.
At least 60 people signed up for their chance to have Wilson sign shirts, baseballs, bats, pictures and even a Shea Stadium seat. One fan, Dafna Alma, brought eight items for Wilson to sign.
