10 GREATEST MOMENTS:

 
 

 

 
 

1986 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP:

The Mets team managed to capture one world championship (1986), after besting the Boston Red Sox in a seven-game World Series that featured one of their most remarkable comebacks in baseball history. With two outs in the tenth inning of game 6, the Mets came back from two runs down to defeat Boston 6-5.

1969 MIRACLE METS

The 1969 Mets team was dubbed the "Amazin' Mets" or "Miracle Mets." The team posted not only their first winning season, but their first NL pennant and World Series championship after defeating the heavily favored Baltimore Orioles 4 games to 1.

1999 N.L. Championship Series-Grand single

The Mets contended in the NLCS as a Wild Card team.

If the mark of a good team is its ability to rise to a challenge, the Mets formed a very good team indeed.

1969 WORLD SERIES

If pitching and defense are the keys to success, then the Mets outfielders were undoubtedly no less than any other established players.

TOM SEAVER AND THE 1969 METS IN PURSUIT OF PERFECTION

Tom Seaver came within two outs of a perfect game, but gave up a one-out, ninth-inning single to the Chicago Cubs' Jimmy Qualls for the only hit in the Mets' 4-0 victory.

ONE OUGHT TO BELIEVE

Sometimes the chase is not swift or strong, but is complimentary to the team that perseveres.

 THE ACQUISITION OF ONE OF THE GAME’S GREATEST SLUGGERS

While Hundley recovered, and opportunity came to the Mets when Mike Piazza, was dealt to the Florida Marlins for the Los Angels Dodgers. The Marlins were just a weigh station for Piazza, who was clearly going to be traded again. Owner Nelson Doubleday seeing an opportunity urged GM Steve Phillips to acquire the star catcher, and on May 21st the deal was made, as Piazza became the Mets first superstar in years. The acquisition of Piazza was a great disappointment for Hudley.

1999 FIRST-EVER DIVISION SERIES

In the NLDS the Mets would face the Arizona Diamondbacks. Though the D-Backs featured Randy Johnson Mike Piazza defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks with a dramatic 10th inning walk off homer.

BIRTH OF A FRANCHISE IN FLUSHING

Two years after the Dodgers and Giants departed New York, attorney William Shea announced the formation of a third major league, the Continental League. The AL and NL saw a real threat in third league, and made a deal to expand for the first time in 60 years and took 2 of the League's charter franchises including the New York franchise which would become the Mets.
