Casey Stengel Holds Court

Oct. 6, 1961 - Casey Stengel, who will manage the New York Mets next season, expounded today on matters ranging from the 1964 World's Fair to the world series.

On the World's Fair: "The Mets and the Fair are a great thing for New York City. Every merchant will get rich. The people will be coming from Alaska, wearing their fur coats."

On the world series: "The Cincinnatis will win if they get some pitching."

On the Mets chances: "We'll do all right if they just get me some men to get across home plate."
