Quality Met
April 14, 2011
The only time I ever came in contact with Nelson's name was in a book about the '69 Mets. It was called "The Year the Mets Lost Last Place." The book mentioned that, while driving, he was listening to Tom Seaver's perfect game bid against the Cubs. When Jimmy Qualls got that single in the ninth inning, Nelson started swearing at his car radio.
