Donn Clendenon was a tower of strength for me. I love the man. He made me feel very capable with his performance and leadership, and when you read his book, you'll understand why. I couldn't put the book down as it evoked wonderful memories for me of that fabulous year. -- Tug McGraw-Relief Pitcher for the 1969 Mets
The 1969 Mets had great pitching, defense, and timley hitting. The team was like a puzzle that was being put together by Gil Hodges, and when Gil acquired Donn Clendenon in June of 1969, he was the final piece of the puzzle that set us in motion to pursue our World Series Championship. -- Tommie Agee--Centerfielder for the 1969 Mets
The 1969 Mets were known for the great pitching of Tom Seaver, Jerry Koosman, Gary Gentry, Nolan Ryan, and Tug McGraw. But until Donn Clendenon showed up with his big bat, we had no chance of winning anything! -- Ron Swoboda-Rightfielder for the 1969 Mets
The Mets really got lucky when Gil Hodges and Johnny Murphy brought Donn Clendenon to New York in Juen of 1969. Although they traded for Donn to help strengthen the Mets against left-handed pitchers, he really helped us in hitting against both left-handed and right-handed pitchers and with his excellen defense. Donn was a great asset to the team because he was a team leader on the field, off the field, and especially in the clubhouse. -- Cleon Jones-Leftfielder for the 1969 Mets
