Well, here’s some news that is uplifting to me: The Mets announced in this article written by Marty Noble [perhaps the best beat writer evah] the return of Wally, as manager of their “High [no pun indended] A” Brooklyn Cyclones, New Yawk’s affiliate in the N.Y. Penn League. Kudos to them for adding Backman to the list of ’86 alims who are now in their employ. They can use all the “back to the future” available.
