“Harrelson, who led the team to the victory in the World Series in 1969, was the best shortstop. My deepest condolences go out to his family,” the Mets said in a statement issued by Steven Cohen, the team’s owner.

Harrelson, who played in the Major League from 1965 to 1980, played for the Mets for 13 years alone. His overall record is 1,120 for 4,744 at-bats in 1533 games, 0.236 for seven homers, 267 RBIs and 127 stolen bases with an OPS of 0.616.

Harrelson’s performance was not that impressive. However, he has received a Gold Glove once, ranking first in terms of contribution to victory over substitute defense players in the history of the Mets.

Harrelson won his team’s first World Series title in 1969, and his team’s second World Series title in 1986 as a third base coach. When he was an active player, he had a scuffle with Pete Rose, who slid to second base during Game 3 of the National League Championship Series (NLCS) against the Cincinnati Reds in 1973.

Harrelson, who led the Mets after his retirement, served as manager in 1990 and 1991, and recorded a combined 145 wins and 129 losses (0.529) for two seasons. A member of the club’s Hall of Fame, he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2016 and had a long illness due to rapid deterioration of his health.
