As the New York Mets celebrate their fiftieth anniversary of National League baseball, this rollicking chronicle recounts a half century of the team’s ups and downs. Chapters recount the best and worst teams; the greatest players; the most thrilling wins and most excruciating losses; the most memorable and forgettable teams in franchise history; and even a guide to appreciating the Mets, including tips on spring training as well as the best sports bars to see the Mets on TV without having to fight for the remote.
