The play, now 32 years old, would link Bill Buckner and Mookie Wilson forever, though the Mets’ World Series hero doesn’t want Buckner’s lasting legacy to be defined by that one moment.
A “saddened” Wilson honored Buckner a few hours after the 69-year-old baseball icon died Monday following a battle with Lewy Body Dementia.
“We had developed a friendship that lasted well over 30 years,” Wilson said in a statement. “I felt badly for some of the things he went through. Bill was a great, great baseball player, whose legacy should not be defined by one play.”
While Buckner’s mostly remembered for the Wilson dribbler that squeaked by, allowing the Mets to climb back and eventually win the 1986 World Series over Boston, he also managed an impressive 22 seasons in the majors.
The one-time All-Star racked up 2,715 hits and 174 home runs with the Dodgers, Cubs, Red Sox, Angels and Royals from 1969-1990.
And that’s how Wilson wants Buckner to be remembered.
