50 years later, the video replay of Ron Swoboda’s miraculous catch in the 1969 World Series is one of the most watched presentations of one of the best-remembered moments in baseball history. It’s the starting point for Swoboda’s new book Here’s the Catch: A Memoir of the Miracle Mets and More. Baseball legend Branch Rickey famously said, “Luck is the residue of design.” He didn’t name the designer. Swoboda knows he’s a lucky guy. This is the most transparent, truthful, happy autobiography I’ve ever read.
