      • The New York Mets' "You Gotta Have Heart" clip appears on the "25 Years of New York Mets Baseball: An Amazin' Era" video. Following the World Series clips and victory parade, the tape shows the Mets "enjoying the spotlight" on The Ed Sullivan Show. This appearance took place three days after the Series ended. (Thanks to doppelganger for this info.)
