Happy Birthday Tug!

"The reason I love baseball so much is because when I come into a game in the bottom of the ninth, bases loaded, no one out, and a one-run lead; it takes people off my mind." - Tug McGraw

1986 Let's Go Mets!

To start off Mets week we thought we'd highlight 1986 and what better way to do it then with the Lets Go Mets music video. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

1986 was a big year for the Mets ball club. Under manager Davey johnson they won 108 games. In the post season they first defeat the Houston Astros to move on to the World Series. Although it was not an easy task they wound up clinching the title in Game 7 to win the franchise's second World Championship.
