Ken Boswell: Second Baseman On Two Mets World Series Teams (1967-1974)

Kenneth George Boswell was born on February 23, 1946, at Austin, Texas. The six foot, left hand hitting infielder attended his hometown Sam Houston College on a baseball scholarship. At first, he went to school after being urged to do so by his parents, but He quickly realized he was tired of school & just wanted to play baseball.

At the time, MLB rules required a player who started school, must graduate before signing a pro contract. But legendary Mets scout Red Murf found a way around those rules & signed Boswell in fourth round of the 1965 draft. In that same draft the Mets picked up Les Rohr (first round), Jim McAndrew (11th round) & Nolan Ryan (12th round). 

Quotes- Ken Boswell: “I signed for $8,000, which was a lot less than I would have gotten before the draft, but I guess it was more than my dad ever made,” Boswell said. “Actually, I was awfully lucky to be drafted by the Mets, because they needed ballplayers, and I didn’t have to wait very long before being called up." 

In the minor leagues he hit well, hitting safely in his first 19 games in the New York / Penn. League. There he won the Rookie of the Year while batting .285. 

He struggled defensively in the infield, earning a good hit, poor glove title. After the 1966 season, the Mets had traded away regular second baseman Ron Hunt, with intentions of giving Boswell the position. But he got then got called away for military duty, where he'd spend his spring & summer. 

Mets Career:  On September 18, 1967, he made his MLB debut in a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Shea Stadium. Boswell started at third base, hitting a sac fly with a double off Jim Brewer, and driving in two runs in the Mets 7-2 win. 

Boswell hit safely in three of his first four games & added had a three hit day in Los Angeles on September 29th.

He hit his first career HR at Dodger Stadium the next day, off Don Drysdale, on the next to last game of the season. In the last game of the '67 season he booted a grounder, allowing the Dodgers to score two runs & win the game 2-1. 

Boswell said many of the guys were happy the game ended, because they all had plane tickets to get away & didn't want to play extra innings. That's the way the attitude was in the clubhouse, until Gil Hodges changed all that the next season.

 In the 1968 off season Boswell injured his ribs, after falling on ice at his home. He entered Spring Training, battling Bobby Heise for the second base job. New manager Gil Hodges also acquired Al Weis & Phil Linz who all shared the playing time. 

1968: Boswell was the Mets opening day second baseman for new Mets manager Gil Hodges. He started out the season which began on the west coast, getting two hits in each of his first two games, including an RBI sac fly in Jerry Koosman's 4-0 shut in Los Angeles. Boswell began with a six-game hit streak, hitting safely in nine out of eleven games, with twelve hits. Starting April 28th, he hit solo HRs in consecutive games at Cincinnati. 

Walk Off Win: On May 21st, in a long four hours twenty-five-minute game against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Shea Stadium, Boswell got an infield hit with two outs in the bottom of the 17th inning. Infielder & former Met, Chuck Hiller made a bad throw to first base allowing Tommie Agee to score the game's winning run. 

Boswell opened June with a five-game streak. On June 24th he suffered a broken finger which sidelines him for two months.

When he returned, he got back into a groove, hitting safely in his first two games. On August 28th he had a three-hit game driving in a run in the Mets 5-2 loss to the Reds. In September he did not hit any HRs nor drive in any runs, but he did hit safely in all but five games the entire month. He finished the year hitting safely in 15 of twenty games in September. 

He also settled in to playing a steady second base, posting a .965 fielding %, making a quality double play partner for All Star Bud Harrelson at short stop. Boswell was named a Topps All Star rookie playing in 75 games, batting .261 with four HRs, seven doubles, 37 runs scored 11 RBIs & a .300 on base %. 

1969 Championship Season: In the Mets 1969 Championship season he started the year by making three errors in the Opening Day loss to the Montreal Expos. It was the first game in the expansion Expos history making it the first international game in MLB history, as Canada was brought into the major leagues.  

In the 1st inning Boswell's error had Gary Sutherland reach first base. Later when Bob Bailey doubled Boswell's throwing error on the relay allowed Mack Jones to score as well, leading it to two unearned runs scoring off Mets pitcher Tom Seaver.  Boswell made another error on a groundball on the 5th inning as well. The Mets lost their eighth opening day in a row, this time in a historic game, against the expansion Montreal Expos. Boswell did have two hits in the game.

The next day he hit his first HR of the season collecting two hits &a walk in the Mets 9-5 win. He had a good start to 1969, hitting safely in 19 of his first 23 games, giving him a .308 average. 

On April 30th, in tight game in Montreal, Boswell broke a 1-1 tie in the top of the 9th inning with an RBI base hit off Mike Wegener leading to a Tom Seaver 2-1 win over the Expos. 

In the first game of a May 4th double header at Wrigley Field, Boswell broke a 1-1 tie with a 5th inning base hit off the Cubs Bill Hands. The Mets would win the game 3-2, in another Tom Seaver victory. In the second game Boswell's double, scored the first run of the game as the Mets went on to another 3-2 win & a sweep of the Cubs in Chicago. 

This win sent an early message to their NL East rival, that New York was going to be for real. 

Army Reserves: In June, Boswell served two weeks in the military reserves.

He returned during a road trip to Philadelphia, collecting two hits & a 7th inning walk. Pitcher Bill Champion then balked, followed by J.C. Martin's RBI single scoring Boswell with the game's only run, in Gary Gentry's two hit shutout.

 On June 19th he helped the Mets complete a series sweep of the Phillies, with a 9th inning base hit off Turk Farrell, driving in Don Clendenon & Ron Swoboda with the games winning runs. 

The next day in front of 54,083 fans at Shea Stadium, Boswell had two more hits, including an RBI triple off the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Famer: Bob Gibson, helping Nolan Ryan to a win, getting his record to 3-0. 

Big Game vs First Place Cubs: On July 8th in an epic battle against the first place Chicago Cubs, Boswell hit his famous 9th inning pinch hit bloop double off future Hall of Famer; Ferguson Jenkins. With the Mets down 3-1 in the bottom of the 9th inning, Boswell blooped a pop fly to short left. The ball fell in front of Cubs outfielder Don Young & the hustling Boswell ended up on second base. 

Donn Clendenon would also reach base & Cleon Jones would then double bringing in Boswell & Clendenon to tie it. Ed Kranepool ended the game with a walk off base hit, as Don Young made another miscue in left field. Art Shamsky who had walked, came home & scored the game's winning run, as the Shea crowd of 55,000 went wild. The walk off win brought a huge excitement to Mets fans & all of baseball were believing more in those Miracle Mets. 

By July the Mets/ Cubs rivalry was heating up as the young Mets were proving they were really contenders. On July 15th Boswell hit a 5th inning HR off Dick Selma in a 5-4 Mets win. The next day he had a pair of hits, helping New York take two of three from the Cubs at Wrigley Field. On the year Boswell did well against the Cubs, batting .365 with 9 RBIs against them. 

Gil Hodges Doghouse: Boswell then made a few base running mistakes as well as some mental fielding errors, which put him in Gil Hodges doghouse. In the first game of the July series at Wrigley Field he was thrown out trying to stretch a single into a double, in the 8th inning of the 1-0 loss. 

He also was thrown out at third base trying to advance on an infield ground ball in the 12th inning of a one run loss against the Cincinnati Red a week later. 

At the end of July, he made crucial errors in two games at Shea Stadium resulting in losses to the Astros. Houston went on to sweep the series in the heat of the pennant race. Boswell was sat down, spending some time on the bench, the lesson seemed to work. 

Boswell remembered Hodges: “He had such a high level of concentration; he was thinking about the game all the time, and he tried to get the players to think that way. Gil changed the whole attitude on the club. He was a real disciplinarian, too.” 

Pennant Race: Boswell did get hot down the pennant stretch, batting over .400 from the end of August through September, hitting safely in 21 out of 27 games. In the first eleven games of September, he played in, Boswell drove in eight runs., that month he dove in 11 runs batted .378 with nine extra base hits & 11 walks.

On September 2nd, Boswell collected three hits in an exciting win over the Dodgers. The Mets had a 5-1 lead, but L.A. came back with three runs making it a 5-4 win, making Boswell's hit in the 8th inning the insurance game winner.

Texas Bachelor In the Big City: He was still a bachelor and received a lot of mail from girls asking him over for dinner. Boswell remembers: "The girls from Brooklyn keep writing and inviting me to go try their spaghetti, but they'd have a better chance if they made spareribs. When I get home to Austin they are going to have a Welcome Home, Ken Boswell Parade. I hope they mean me and not some other Ken Boswell." 

After the Championship: During Spring Training 1970, Manager Gil Hodges told Boswell he believed he could be a solid second baseman. Boswell worked hard, to prove his manager right, turning himself into a superior second baseman. He gave all the credit to Hodges for believing in him. 

He was spectacular at times, setting an MLB fielding record going 85 games without making an error at second base. He finished up the year committing just two errors in 450 chances, setting a Mets fielding record at the position, leading the league with a .996 fielding %. 

He had a good start at the plate as well, batting .293 in April & getting to the .300 mark going into mid-May.

The Mets finished third that year at 83-73. Boswell hit a career high nine HRs, but his average fell to .211 & his on base % was just .274. 

The Mets used utility man Ted Martinez more at second base that season & they were concerned about Boswell’s shoulder entering the 1973 season. In the off season they acquired All Star second baseman Felix Millan from the Atlanta Braves (along with pitcher George Stone) in exchange for Gary Gentry & Danny Frisella. This limited Boswell to a utility player & pinch hitter.

1973 Mets Pennant Season:
In the Mets 1973 NL Championship season, Boswell saw action in just three games at second base, behind the steady Millan who played in 153 games at the position. 
Boswell also played 17 games at third base behind Wayne Garrett.

On April 22nd in the first game of a double header with the Expos, Boswell pinch hit for Tom Seaver in the bottom of the 9th, with the Mets down 1-0. He singled to center off one of the game's best relievers, Montreal's Mike Marshall. Jim Fregosi scored the tying run, but the Mets would end up losing the game after former Met; Tim Foli, singled off the Mets reliver Phil Hennigan in the 10th inning. 

In the second game of the double header, he would enter the game in the 6th inning & came through with another pinch-hit RBI the Mets 13-3 blow out.

In May during a four-game stretch at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, Boswell had two more successful pinch hit at bats. 

On May 24th, the Mets & Dodgers played a 19th inning five hour & forty-two-minute marathon. The game was tied 3-3 in the top of the 19th when Rusty Staub broke the tie with a double off Doug Rau scoring Cleon Jones. Boswell then came in to pinch hit & singled home Staub giving the Mets a 5-3 lead. He would score on Ed Kranepool's double & the Mets went on to an eventual 7-3 win. 

On May 27th, the Dodgers Don Sutton had shut out the Mets into the 8th inning & was holding on to a 2-0 lead. Boswell belted a pinch-hit HR to bring the Mets within a run, but they lost it 2-1.

In June he went just 2-12 as a pinch hitter. In July he was 0-8 in the role but had two multi hit games in times where he started a game. On August 1st he got a start at third base & he drove in a pair of runs with a two-hit game, at Pittsburgh in a 5-2 win over the Pirates.

In the bottom of the 9th inning at Shea Stadium, the Mets were won 3-2 to the first place Pittsburgh Pirates. Bowell led off the inning with a pinch-hit base hit off Bob Johnson, representing the tying run on base. 

He would score on Duffy Dyer's double sending the game to those famous extra innings in which the Mets won 4-3. In the 13th Boswell drew a walk to reach base again.

On the season he was still solid on the field making only one error in 37 chances (.973 fielding %). Overall, as a reserve player he appeared in 76 games, batting .227, with two HRs two doubles 14 RBIs & a .303 on base %.

n 1974 manager Yogi Berra said he wanted Boswell for his bat & thought about using him in the outfield. That lasted just seven games, but he did see more time at second base (28 games) & third base (20 games) . Boswell was once again, one of the teams main pinch hitters, going 9-42 in that role (.213).

On May 5th, he pinch hit for Bud Harrelson, in the bottom of the 9th, with the Mets down by a run against the San Diego Padres. Boswell tapped a base hit up the middle, scoring Teddy Martinez with the tying run. New York won it on a John Milner walk off HR. 

On August 5th he hit a 7th inning, two run pinch hit HR off Montreal’s Dennis Blair, to tie the game the Mets would go on to win 10-4. 

In 96 games he hit just .216 with two HRs six doubles 15 RBIs & a .277 on base%. 

Declined Tour of Japan: 
That winter the Mets took a baseball tour of Japan. Boswell, Duffy Dyer & Ray Sadecki all declined going on the trip. That winter GM Joe McDonald traded all three of the players away. Many felt it was because they didn't make that trip.

Traded: On October 29, 1974, he was traded back near his home in Texas, going to the Houston Astros in exchange for Bob Gallagher.

Mets Anniversaries:
On a sad note, Boswell was not on hand for the 40th anniversary of the 1969 team due to a misunderstanding with the organization. Boswell claims he had a hard time acquiring tickets during the 2006 season when the Mets visited Houston on a road trip. 

He also stated that he wasn’t invited to the team's locker room to meet any of the players, especially manager Willie Randolph who wore #12 in honor of Ken Boswell. He did not attend the 2019 50th Anniversary celebrations either.

#12: Willie Randolph a fellow second baseman claims that he wore the uniform number 12 because Ken Boswell was his favorite Mets player when he was a kid growing up in Brooklyn. 

Family: Ken married his wife Toney in the early seventies.

 Retirement: In his later years Boswell is a rancher & sells antique cars in Austin, Texas.

Great article! However, on July 8, 1969, Boswell lead off with a bloop double to CENTER FIELD and that's what Don Young played that day and Ken did not score the winning run. Cleon Jones did! Jones also tied the game when Boswell and Clendenon both scored on Cleon's double and then Ed Kranepool's bloop single scored Jones and the Mets won it! I watched the game on WOR-TV, Channel 9 that afternoon. The next night, of course, Tom Seaver had his near perfect game against the Cubs at Shea Stadium!

Played with Kenny in 1965 on the Auburn Mets managed by Clyde McCullough. I came up from the Marion Mets as a second baseman, but Ken had a nineteen game hit streak going, so I ended up playing the outfield. (never played it before, all the way back to little league … thanks Kenny!) Great, great, teammate!!! I remember a game against the Jamestown Tigers with Jim Leyland as the catcher. He probably remembers the leadoff hitter, (me), and the second hitter, (Ken), because we totaled 8 hits between us, both getting 4 hits. It was a blast that year, and playing alongside Ken had a lot to do with it! Kenny, if you are reading this I hope you are happy and well!
Best always,
Steve "Scooter" Smith
