Meet Art Shamsky
The popularity of the 1969 Mets is everlasting and Art maintains, “There isn’t a day that goes by that someone doesn’t want to talk to me about the 1969 Mets.” In addition to being part of that incredible New York Met team, Art also had another distinction to add to his baseball career. In 1966, while a member of the Cincinnati Reds, he tied a Major League record by hitting four consecutive home runs in four at-bats over two games. He is the only player in Major League history to hit three home runs in a game who was not in the starting lineup when the game began.
