September 21, 2010 Doug DeLise Back to Lindsey, you guys remember him announcing the World Series in 69 with Curt Gowdy on NBC. I liked all three of their announcers, and those who followed, including believe it or not, Steve Albert. May 8, 2007 Dame football games on Sunday mornings.

All carry on Lindsey's class and mannerisms. “ ‘Their pitching, their clutch hitting, their clutch defense, they just kept wearing us down,’ ” Gowdy recalled Palmer saying.

Doug DeLise The game was scheduled for an early-afternoon start, which means I wouldn’t make it home from school in time to see any of it. The way he announced it when the Mets won the Eastern October 13, 2005 Jeff The public Lindsey Nelson walked in fame and celebrity, but the private Lindsey Nelson had to deal with many ordeals, the knowledge that his first daughter was retarded, the early death of his wife Mickie, the long siege of Parkinson's disease over his last 12 years. I vividly recall one game where the rain delay lasted a bit longer than expected. Division in 1969 stands out! mitch

I agree that things were never the same after Lindsey left after the 1978 season. The game was never dull when Lindsey Nelson was on the air. January 17, 2006 I miss those "way back there, gone for a home run" calls by Lindsey. If a base hit by John Milner gave the Mets a lead they never gave up, he'd say, "In the 6th, John Milner singled through the middle driving in Millan and Garrett, and put the Mets ahead 3-0. Between attending the final game at Shea (another heartbreak) and then coming across this board, the memories of my youth and growing up with the Mets have come flooding back.To this day, if I could have one job in the world, it would be to announce Mets games on TV and/or radio. Doug DeLise

Despite the outlandishness he was great to listen to along with Murph and Ralph Kiner. Before joining the Mets in 1962, Mr. Nelson called major league baseball from 1957 to 1961 on NBC, with Leo Durocher, Fred Haney and Joe Garagiola, competing with CBS's powerhouse broadcast, led by Dizzy Dean. Whenever he identified someone on camera like a manager in the dugout or a pitcher in the bullpen, he'd say the name of the person twice. I miss those "way back there, gone for a home run" calls by Lindsey.

That was, of course, September 24, 1969 at Shea Stadium, when the Mets won the NL East Title, beating St. Louis, 6-0, that night.Also, the night of August 19, 1969, when the Mets beat the Giants, 1-0, in 14 innings, Sadly, the two Mets heroes in that game had since passed away.

Now in my late 40's I think, NO Lindsey Nelson, Thank you for all those WONDERFUL MEMORIES. Today's loudmouths like John Sterling & Michael Kay could learn a lesson about how to broadcast a game professionally without being a goofball. October 24, 2008

There used to be a jingle that they would play sometimes when they broke for commercial.

What a broadcasting team. Division in 1969 stands out! He went all the way allowing only 1 run..."He was the voice of the Mets for 18 years, and it was never the same when he left.

Just a quick comment on the previous post: Lindsey and Murph used to flip-flop every other game on WOR-TV. March 13, 2005

I missed the broadcasts so much that I would scan my transistor radio for the Mets broadcasts. GOOD STUFF!!! Feat Fan However, his call was still indelibly etched in my mind as every station in New York played that call over and over again on TV newscasts throughout the following week and well into the Autumn, long past the Mets' World Series triumph.I have great respect for Gary Cohen, Ron Darling and Keith Hernandez, but for me, Lindsey Nelson was (and always will be) the consummate broadcaster for the NY Mets. Lindsey Nelson's famous call of the Mets clinching the National League East in 1969 is indelibly etched in my mind. ", but he stopped. Lindsey, Bob and Ralph painted a picture with words that will never be surpassed. I enjoyed listening to Lindsey Nelson calling baseball games on CBS Radio, and I enjoyed Mr. Nelson for all of those years he did Notre Dame Football, and all of those wonderful years he called NFL football, and the Cotton Bowl for CBS as well.

I can still hear the voice of broadcasting GREAT Lindsey Nelson echoing in my ears.

Very objective and a great broadcasting voice.The one memory that stands out dearly to me was when Bob Apodaca used to warm up for the Mets. Sound of the New York Mets! Classic sports ran a 1980 NFL playoff game matching Dallas-Atlanta with Lindsey doing the call. Todd Schuster

He used to do a condensed one-hour version on Sunday mornings of the previous day's game.

Was he not afraid of losing some amount of credibility?

He had a lively voice, but also a little too much flamboyance.In listening to a few old radio broadcasts of the Mets on You Tube recently, I found that Nelson had given the wrong identity of a few players on the field.

Lindsey Nelson was the "anchor" of that first Mets crew from 1962-1979.

This play did not actually happen!

The reason he went to SF in 1979 was entirely personal although slightly due to the Mets play.

Lindsey with his "Good afternoon everybody" and his sport coats, to Ralph's stories through out his career, to Murph's "Happy Recap". It went...WJRZ in Hackensack!

I don't remember what the lunch was, but I still have that lunch bag with my other Mets treasures.What a great guy.

I agree that things were never the same after Lindsey left after the 1978 season. April 8, 2008 Nelson would say, "If you want to look ahead, now, to the bottom of the ninth, the Mets are scheduled to send up Felix Millan, Cleon Jones, and Rusty Staub. Ralph D. I was 12 years old at the time but had the good sense to tape record the whole thing.

Lindsey, Ralph Kiner and Bob Murphy will always be the Mets announcers to me.

In June, of that year, he did a Mets game and he had Bob Murphy for the "hometown" inning in the 5th.

Something to the effect that anyone can call a winner, but calling games when your team is losing 10-0 after three innings is tough.

During his tenure, the Mets won two pennants (1969 and 1973) and one World Series (1969), carrying the other Series to seven games against the Oakland Athletics. Just a quick comment on the previous post: Lindsey and Murph used to flip-flop every other game on WOR-TV.

A treat!

I remember that he was the September 26, 2013

In 1979 I was working at WBIR in Knoxville. I started following the Mets closely in 1968 (at the age of 9) and attended about 35 games each year from 1969 (not a bad time to start going to Shea regularly) through 1974. At 9:07 on September 24th the Mets have won the Championship of Eastern Division of the National League.

Lindsey, I miss you buddy, you're gone but will never be forgotten.

I looked up and saw this man wearing a multicolorful sportscoat. Later he went on to pick the Lotto numbers for New York State.

Lindsey!!!!

We loved your crazy jackets. I was surprised when he left. It went...WJRZ in Hackensack!
