The New York Mets are relative new to the MLB, having joined it as an expansion franchise in 1962. However, after the departure of the New York Giants and the Brooklyn Dodgers, the Mets remain only the second team to represent the city of New York besides the Yankees.
Based in Queens
The Mets are headquartered out of Queens, New York where they play their home games at the Citi Field. Prior to 2009 the Mets used to play their home games at the Shea Stadium from 1964 to 2008 and in the first two years at the Polo Grounds. The Mets play in the National League where they are placed in the East division.
The Mets did not have an easy start to their campaign in the MLB. In fact the first season record of the club was the worst ever for a baseball franchise in a 162 game season. The franchise would continue to flounder near the bottom of the table for the better part of the decade.
Throughout this dark period, the fans never gave up on their beloved Mets. Finally, their faith was rewarded in what has widely been regarded as one of the most amazing upsets in the history of MLB. In 1969 the Mets came from nowhere to beat the Baltimore Orioles in the World Series and lift their first championship. The Mets would go on to feature in four more World Series. The Mets lifted their second championship over the legendary Boston Red Sox in 1986. Be sure to catch this exciting team in action; buy New York Mets Phoenix tickets now.
