The New York Mets are named after the New York Metropolitans, an independent professional baseball club that took on all comers at the Polo Grounds in the 1880s. The modern day Mets entered Major League Baseball as a National League 1962 expansion franchise. The team played its first 2 seasons at the Polo Grounds (new stadium, same location) then moved to Shea Stadium. 2008 was the club’s last season at Shea. The Mets will play the 2009 season at Citi Field, their new $850 million dollar home in

The Mets have been a top NL East team for the past three seasons. In 2006 the team finished in 1st place with a 95-67 regular season record. In the postseason the club won its 9th playoff series, defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLDS before falling in 7 to the St. Louis Cardinals. In 2007 the Mets, beneficiaries of one of the worst collapses in baseball history (Chicago Cubs, 1969), became first team in baseball history to blow a lead of seven games with only 17 to play. The Mets finished second and missed the postseason. In 2008 they again finished in 2nd with a record of 89-73.
