Nelson Doubleday Jr., the publishing scion who bought the New York Mets and shepherded the team to a 1986 World Series title, has died. He was 81.

SportsNet New York, better known as SNY, announced on Thursday that it has hired Valentine as an analyst for the Mets’ pre- and postgame shows before and after game telecasts.
