Happy Birthday, Cleon Jones

Cleon JonesHappy Birthday to Cleon Jones, the New York Mets left fielder from 1963 to 1975.  I read the New York newspapers for eight years and followed Cleon’s career closely – especially in the miraculous 1969 World Championship year.  Cleon moved over to the White Sox in 1976 after the Mets released him, but our paths didn’t cross.  Both of us had shorter seasons than we had hoped for.
