The Mets is one of two baseball franchises that represent New York in the Major League. The Mets are based in Flushing, Queens, and plays under the Eastern Division of the National League.
The New York Mets can trace it roots from 1959, as part of the proposed Continental League. The establishment of a New York baseball franchise in a new league had been a tempting concept as two previous franchises, the Brooklyn Dodgers and the New York Giants, have left the city in favor of Los Angeles and San Francisco, respectively. The National League and the American League responded with both leagues allowing 2 expansion teams each. New York received one of this expansion teams to play in the National League. The new baseball franchise would eventually be called as the “Metropolitan Baseball Club of New York,” or “Mets” for short.
The Mets started to participate in the National League in its 1962 season. The 1962 was composed of the legendary manager Casey Stengel, along with some notable players from the Dodgers, Giants, and Yankees such as Roger Craig, Al Jackson, Frank Thomas and Richie Ashburn. However, these players proved to be past their prime and could not post a winning record during the early 60’s. Despite performing dismally, the team enjoyed a wide following and high Mets tickets sales. The Mets were even dubbed as the “lovable losers.” One of the many notable events in 1962 was when the Mets acquired Harry Chiti from the Cleveland Indians in exchange for a player to be named later on, which turned out be Chiti himself. Harry Chiti remains to be the only player in the Major League to be traded for himself.
In 1964, the Mets moved from the Polo Grounds to the 55,300-seat multi-purpose Shea Stadium. It was also during this time that a baseball oddity occurred, when the Mets competed with the Philadelphia Phillies on Father’s Day. It was an odd day, because fans who bought Mets tickets found themselves cheering for the opposing team’s pitcher Jim Bunning, who threw his second career no-hitter against the Mets.
The tides stated to turn for the Mets when they acquired Tom Seaver, Jerry Grote, and Bud Harrelson in 1967. The three talented athletes formed the core of the team, with 1968 additions in the persons of Jerry Koosman and Tommie Agee. The development of Left fielder Cleon Jones paved the way for future success for the Mets. By 1969, the Mets became a team to watch out for and, on that same year, they won the National League pennant over the Atlanta Braves. The New York Mets eventually met the heavily-favored Baltimore Orioles in the World Series, whom they defeated in a 4-1 series. Their 1969 turn-around caused the baseball team to be dubbed as “the Miracle Mets.”
Despite their success in 1969, the 70’s proved to be a difficult decade for the Mets. Although the team had formidable pitchers, the offense of the team was sub par. In 1972, further troubles plagued the team with the loss of manager Gil Hodges, who passed away due to a heart attack. Managing duties were relegated to Yogi Berra. Despite the team’s loses, the Mets were able to bag the National League pennant in 1973 against the Cincinnati Reds. Their 1973 pennant would be their highlight for that decade.
In the 80’s, the Mets’ ownership would change hands after the Doubleday publishing company bought the franchise from the Paysons. The change of ownership would eventually pay off as they hired general manager Frank Cashen. Cashen drafted fresh talent for the Mets in the person of Darryl Strawberry in 1980, Dwight Gooden in 1982, and the acquisition of other talented athletes in the person of Keith Hernandez in 1983, and Gary Carter in 1985. By the mid-80’s the Mets became another team to watch. This culminated to the 1986 World Series, which the Mets won over the Boston Red Sox in a 4-2 series, to the delight of fans with Mets tickets.
The following seasons proved to be a challenge for the Mets. The success they enjoyed in 1986 proved to be elusive, with bad trades and sub par acquisitions. However, by the late 90’s, the Mets were shaping up to contend yet again. This came to fruition in the 2000 season, when the Mets entered the National League playoffs. On their way to the National League championships, the Mets defeated the San Francisco Giants, then faced the St. Louis Cardinals, whom they defeated to bag the 2000 National League pennant.
