It is happy birthday to the New York Mets!!!
My buddy Len Berman from Len Berman's That's Sports tells all that "On this date in 1962 the Mets were born. They lost in St. Louis 11-4. Casey Stengel was the manager, Roger Craig the losing pitcher, Charlie Neal and Gil Hodges hit homers for the Mets. Don Zimmer played third base. Good times!"
Seven years later they were Amazin'!
