They are one of two Major League clubs based in New York City; the other is the New York Yankees of the American League East. One of baseball’s first expansion teams, the Mets were founded in 1962 to replace New York’s departed NL teams, the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants. The Mets’ colors combine the Dodgers’ blue and the Giants’ orange. For the 1962 and 1963 seasons, the Mets played home games at the Polo Grounds. From 1964 to 2008, their home ballpark was Shea Stadium. In 2009, they moved into their current ballpark, Citi Field.
In their inaugural season, the Mets posted a record of 40–120, the worst regular season record since MLB went to a 162-game schedule. The team never finished better than second to last until the “Miracle Mets” beat the Baltimore Orioles in the 1969 World Series
