    Al Weis

    Weis was the most improbable of heroes in the 1969 Miracle Mets' World Series. The Long Islander's ninth-inning single won Game Two and his seventh-inning homer tied Game Five, making the final Met victory possible. One motivation behind New York's acquisition of the light-hitting utility infielder from Chicago in 1967 was that, at age 29, he couldn't be called for Vietnam-era military duty. Weis, who gave up switch-hitting in 1969, had hit just six career homers prior to the WS smash. (JCA)
