DOC, DONNIE, THE KID, AND BILLY BRAWL focuses on the 1985 New York baseball season, a season like no other since the Mets came to town in 1962. Never before had both the Yankees and the Mets been in contention for the playoffs so late in the same season. For months, New York fans dreamed of the first Subway Series in nearly 30 years, and the Mets and the Yankees vied for their hearts. Despite their nearly identical records, the two teams were drastically different in performance and clubhouse atmosphere. The result was the most attention-grabbing and exciting season New York would see in generations.
