The New York Mets is a major league baseball team based in New York City. Once Ironsides was trying to use the telephone but it wasn't working properly, so instead he was listening to a radio broadcast of a Mets game. They were up against the Dodgers and tied-up in the ninth inning. Bud Harrelson is at bat, and he hits a grounder to Ron Cey, who throws him out. Two outs for the Mets, and then Willie Mays steps up to the plate and he swings, but before we can no what happened, Ironsides stops listening to the broadcast.
