Mustard Minute: Mets win NLCS, so here’s cute kids singing ‘Meet the Mets’
Thursday October 22nd, 2015

The Mets punched their ticket to the World Series for the first time since 2000 with a win against the Cubs on Wednesday night.

What better way to celebrate the team’s return to baseball’s biggest stage than with the 1961 anthem that introduced the team to the world: “Meet The Mets.”

The team has been following through on the lyrical promise of socking the ball and knocking home runs over the wall, with NLCS MVP Daniel Murphy hitting seven dingers so far in the team’s postseason run.

The Mets will face either the Royals or Blue Jays on Oct. 27 and will have home field advantage thank to the NL’s All-Star Game victory.
