Mets Hall Of Famer Mookie Wilson Talks All-Star Weekend On The Couch
But first, the T-Mobile All-Star FanFest Ticket Hunt takes place this weekend.
Hall of Famer Mookie Wilson stopped by The Couch to talk about the event — and the current Mets team.
“I like some of the young talent, I really do,” Wilson said of his former ball club. “Sometimes that don’t always translate into wins, but we have to be patient. We have some young talent that’s really coming up. They have to learn how to play and win at the major league level and that’s what we’re missing right now.”
Wilson had nothing but good things to say about rising-star pitcher Matt Harvey’s talent level.
“Outstanding,” Wilson said. “He’s pitching way beyond his age.”
And as for the infamous 1986 play — the ball Wilson hit that went between Bill Buckner’s legs in the World Series?
Wilson said rarely a day goes by where he doesn’t get approached about it — and that’s okay.
“It never gets old,” he said. “It’s amazing, it keeps you young.”
