College Contributor Network

The 1986 World Series was one of the most memorable Fall Classics in postseason history. Bill Buckner will forever be remembered for the error he made at first base that kept the the New York Mets alive.

Last week, Buckner along with Mets outfielder Mookie Wilson and first baseman Keith Hernandez, were back in the Big Apple to relive the biggest sports memories of their careers. The three baseball players joined several prominent athletes at Michael Jordan's Steakhouse to celebrate the launch of Brandon Steiner's new book In Their Own Words.

The book features a number of first-person championship stories from legends like NBA Hall of Famer Magic Johnson, Team USA hockey player Mike Eruzione and future MLB Hall of Famer Mariano Rivera. Below are interviews with Buckner, Wilson and Hernandez about the '86 World Series, the art of hitting and life after baseball.
