Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Cleon Joseph Jones (born August 4, 1942 in Plateau, Alabama) is a former Major League Baseball left fielder who is best remembered as the man who caught the final out of the "Miracle Mets" improbable World Series Championship over the Baltimore Orioles. Jones played football and baseball at Mobile County Training School in Mobile, Alabama, and Alabama A&M University. With the Bulldogs, Jones scored 26 touchdowns in nine games. Jones signed with the New York Mets as an amateur free agent in 1963. After batting over .300 for both the Carolina League Raleigh Mets and New York-Penn League Auburn Mets, Jones received a September call-up to the major league club without having played double or triple A ball.show more
