New York Mets Details
New York Mets
The Mets joined the National League as an expansion team in 1962, bringing a second baseball team to New York after the Dodgers and Giants had left for California. The history of these two teams has been incorporated into the Mets franchise. The Mets took on the colors of both departed teams (they wear blue for the Dodgers and orange for the Giants), and Citi Field — the Mets’ home park — was built deliberately to resemble the Dodgers’ famous Ebbets Field. One of Citi Field’s main attractions, the Jackie Robinson Rotunda, pays homage to the most celebrated Brooklyn Dodger.
The Mets have won two World Series titles. Their first came in the 1969 “Miracle Mets” season. Before 1969, the Mets had never had a winning record. But the Miracle Mets won 100 games in the regular season, swept the NLCS, and defeated the Baltimore Orioles in the World Series. The Mets won their second World Series in 1986, after Red Sox first baseman Bill Buckner famously missed a routine ground ball in Game 6, and the Mets’ winning run scored from second base. The win forced a Game 7, which the Mets won the following day.
In the current millennium, the Mets have won two NL Pennants (2000 and 2015). They lost to the Yankees in 2000 World Series — known as the Subway Series because it featured two New York teams — and to the Royals in the 2015 Series. The Mets last reached the playoffs in 2016 but lost the Wild Card Game to the Giants.
2017 was a year the Mets would rather forget. Opening Day starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard was one of a number of Mets who struggled with injuries during the year, as “Thor” appeared in only three games. Fans still believe that the Mets boast a talented roster and can rebound in 2018. Once Michael Conforto returns from injury to join sluggers Yoenis Cespedes and Jay Bruce, the team will boast one of the hardest-hitting outfields in the league.
