New York Mets
Lets Go Mets!

One of the first expansion teams in baseball history, the New York Mets was founded in 1962 as a replacement for the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants from the national league. But the Dodgers and Giants are still remembered through the Mets colors: Dodgers’ blue and Giants’ orange. These famous colors can be seen on baseball caps worn throughout the boroughs of New York.

The team plays for the MLB from the National League East division, and rivals the other New York based MLB team, New York Yankees.After a shaky start at the beginning of its career, the Mets soon became world champions during the 1969 World Series, earning the nickname “the Miracle Mets”. With two World Series and five NL CHampionships wins under its belt, the Mets have become the pride of New York City.

For 46 years, the Mets played their home games at Shea Stadium until their move to Citi Field in 2008. Visitors coming to the stadium can cheer on the team with the fans’ chant, “Let’s go Mets!”. After a game, fans can also purchase Mets memorabilia at the stadium throughout the year.

Fans and tourists can sing along to “Meet the Mets” the Mets’ theme song that plays during home games and tv broadcasts. Mr. Met, the team’s official mascot, can be seen roaming the fields during home games. And fans young and old alike can take pictures with the #1 mascot of sports and his female companion, Mrs. Met.
