Principle owner, Fred Wilpon, released the following statement:
Ralph Kiner was one of the most beloved people in Mets history — An original
Met and extraordinary gentleman. After a Hall of Fame playing career, Ralph
became a treasured broadcasting icon for more than half a century. His knowledge
of the game, wit, and charm entertained generations of Mets fans. Like his stories,
he was one of a kind.We send our deepest condolences to Ralph’s five children
and twelve grandchildren. Our sport and society today lost one of the all-time greats.
