Former Mets And Yankees Third Baseman Talks Subway Series, Playing With Bo Jackson And A Lot More

NEW YORK (WFAN) — Robin Ventura went from being one of the best college baseball players ever to becoming one of the majors’ best two-way third basemen of the 1990s.

While he played for both the Mets and the Yankees at the height of the Subway Series rivalry in the late ’90s and early 2000s, Ventura, who celebrated his 49th birthday on Thursday, made his name as a player with the White Sox and has been their manager since 2012.
