New York Mets – National League East
The New York Mets play Major League Baseball (MLB) in the National League (NL) East Division. The Mets are one of two Major League clubs based in New York City; the other is the New York Yankees. One of baseball’s first expansion teams, the Mets were founded in 1962 to replace the Brooklyn Dodgers and the New York Giants. In 2009, they moved into their current ballpark, Citi Field.
The team never finished better than second to last until the 1969 "Miracle Mets" beat the Baltimore Orioles in the 1969 World Series in what is considered one of the biggest upsets in World Series history. Since then, they have played in four additional World Series, including a dramatic run in 1973 that ended in a seven-game loss to the Oakland Athletics, a second championship in 1986 over the Boston Red Sox, a Subway Series loss against their cross-town rivals the New York Yankees in 2000, and a five-game loss to the Kansas City Royals in 2015.
The Mets qualified to play in the Major League Baseball postseason in 2006, when they came within one game of the World Series, losing to the eventual champion St. Louis Cardinals in the NLCS. The Mets missed the playoffs with losses on the last day of the regular season in 2007 and 2008. The Mets made the playoffs in 2015 for the first time in nine years, and won their first NL pennant in 15 years. The team again returned to the playoffs in 2016, this time with a wild card berth. This is the team’s second back-to-back playoff appearance, the first occurring during the 1999 and 2000 seasons.
In 2009 the Mets moved from Shea Stadium to their current ballpark, Citi Field in Queens, NY. Citi Field pays homage to the over 2000 bridges in NYC by creating a bridge motif throughout the park. The stadium features a retractable roof and movable grass field and is amongst the most luxurious stadium in baseball. Enjoy great food and drinks at The Porsche Luxury Suites, Porsche Grill, Delta Sky 360, Hyundai, Foxwood and Promenade Clubs. The Delta Metropolitan and Field Boxes are great for getting close but truly any seat in this magnificent stadium is a treat.
