This guy is one of the three players (along with Darryl Strawberry and Ricky Ledee) to have played for all four of the current MLB teams that used to be based in New York.

In both cases, Texas was one strike away from winning the World Series. Both of these players also hit home runs that game (one of those home runs was more memorable than the other).

What TEAM won the last time Game 2 of a World Series went to extra innings (before 2015)? Joe Oliver's walk-off single off Dennis Eckersley scored Billy Bates. (As of October 27, 2015, Game 2 had the longest "extra innings drought" of the seven possible World Series games.)

Which first baseman singled home Willie Wilson in the tenth inning to end Game 3 of the 1980 World Series, the last time before 2015 that the Kansas City Royals won an extra inning World Series game? Unfortunately he was in jail on drug trafficking charges from 1994 to 2008.

Willie Aikens

Who was the winning pitcher the last time (before 2015) the New York Mets WON an extra inning World Series game? A starting pitcher for most of his age 24 season, he won Game 6 of the 1986 World Series despite allowing Dave Henderson's go-ahead home run. He became a closer in 1989 and finished his career in 2000 with 318 saves.

Who was the winning pitcher the second time (of three pre-2015) the Mets won an extra inning World Series game? In 1973 he came into the sixth inning at Oakland with a 6-3 lead and pitched through the 11th, although back-to-back singles to Gene Tenace and Reggie Jackson tied the game with two out in the ninth. (Coincidentally he was the losing pitcher of the game mentioned in question 9, though he was no longer a Met by then.)
