New York Mets Team Formation
World Series Winners - 2 World Series Wins
The 1986 World Series pitted the National League champion New York Mets against the American League champion Boston Red Sox. The Mets won the Series in the seventh game, after overcoming a nearly hopeless deficit in Game 6, culminating in a late-game error by Boston's first baseman Bill Buckner. Game 6 was also cited in the legend of the "Curse of the Bambino" to explain the error.
World Series - 1969
The 1969 World Series was played between the New York Mets and the Baltimore Orioles, with the Mets prevailing in five games to accomplish one of the greatest upsets in Series history, as that particular Orioles squad was considered to be one of the finest ever and still is by some baseball pundits. The World Series win earned the team the sobriquet "Miracle Mets," as they had risen from the depths of mediocrity the 1969 team had the first winning record in Mets history.
