Heather Quinlan, a long time Mets fan, has started a Kickstarter campaign to fund a movie about the 1986 New York Mets run to its World Series championship.
That year’s team featured a cast of characters, including Darryl Strawberry, Dwight Gooden, Keith Hernandez and Ron Darling.
Among the memorable moments that occurred that year include Boston Red Sox first baseman Bill Buckner letting a ground ball slip underneath his glove and out into right field.
The Mets ended up winning the championship after that play and continuing the Red Sox’ infamous run of not winning the World Series, which they subsequently ended in 2004.
Quinlan has reportedly interviewed some members of the Mets that year, including Strawberry, Gooden and Mookie Wilson, but is looking for money to continue the project.
According to the Kickstarter page for the film, she is looking for $50,000 for the film and has raised a little over $3,600 for the documentary as of press time.
Quinlan has produced other movies such as “If These Knishes Could Talk,” which is about the New York accent.
Let’s get some money raised so that Quinlan can tell the story of what is the most memorable team in Mets history!
