  • Ron Taylor: Still Amazin' after 40 Years

    Four decades have passed since Cleon Jones hauled in Davey Johnson's fly ball to secure the first World Series championship for the New York Mets, a team that took its fans on an incredible journey that is revered to this day as simply -- amazin'.

    That Amazin' club could also boast of a sturdy veteran presence in the bullpen to help lead young stars such as Nolan Ryan and Tug McGraw -- closer Ron Taylor. And the story hasn't gotten any less compelling.
