No sports franchise in history has offered its loyal following a more dramatic sampling of painful and laughable lows, alongside stunning and odds-defying highs, than the New York Mets. The love of broken-hearted, jilted Dodger and Giant fans for this new team was forged in this baseball-loving city's desparate desire for a new National League representative. But this only begins to explain the Mets` place in the city`s heart. This is an anecdotal, whimsical, and numerical look back at the games and the people who defined 40 years of logic-defying magic.
Howard Blatt has followed the Mets since the beginning, first as a fan, and later as the beat writer for the New York Daily News. He is also the author of THIS CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON (Pocket Books) about the New York Yankees of 1998.Howard resides in Potomac, Maryland.Review:
Reading this is like deja vu all over again. Everything you need to know about the Mets is here. -- Yogi Berra
Whatever Blatt doesn't know about the Mets hasn't happened yet. A true delight for Mets fans and baseball fans alike. -- Harvey Araton - New York Times
