FROM THE PUBLISHER
Since their inception in 1962, the New York Mets have not traveled the straight and narrow path. These top 10 lists chart the many highs and lows over that journey–from World Series victories in 1969 and 1986 through an injury-shattered 2017 season. The team’s passionate fans lovingly embrace the triumphs, like when Mike Piazza’s post-9/11 home run lifted a devastated city, just as they endure the frustrations, caused by such culprits as Chipper Jones and Chase Utley.
From the greatest left-handed pitchers to the worst trades to the best single-game hitting performances, author Brian Wright ranks the most unforgettable memories in the history of New York’s inimitable baseball franchise.
