SNY corners Kiner

Ralph Kiner is in his 50th season as a Mets broadcaster – a stretch five times longer than his Hall of Fame playing career.

SNY will celebrate at 7 p.m. Thursday with a half-hour show looking back at his multi-generation term.

Among those interviewed are Tom Seaver, Keith Hernandez, Tim McCarver and Kiner, who has a sense of humor about himself and surely won’t mind SNY including some of his famous malapropisms.

Kiner also recalls his first (and only) date with Elizabeth Taylor, who soon was gone, goodbye.
