Where Are They Now: Art Shamsky
Thanks to MetsToday reader Walnutz, we now know that OF/1B/pingponger/Ironman Jeff Conine is down for the count and is in no shape to un-retire.
We also have news today about another ex-Met — Art Shamsky.
Shamsky, who inspired many of us to grow muttonchop sideburns but is better known as one of the fan favorites of the ’69 Miracle Mets, has joined the staff of Gotham Baseball Magazine as a senior editor.
Also joining the Gotham team is Marty Appel, the longtime Yankee publicist and baseball author.
