Casey Stengel, manager of the 1962 New York Mets, had this to say about his team: “I been in this game a hundred years but I see new ways to lose I never knew existed before.” Although the 1962 Mets were the worst baseball team of the modern era,MoreCasey Stengel, manager of the 1962 New York Mets, had this to say about his team: “I been in this game a hundred years but I see new ways to lose I never knew existed before.” Although the 1962 Mets were the worst baseball team of the modern era, they remain one of the most beloved teams of any era.

Stories about the Original Mets have become legendary and have been passed down through the generations. Surprisingly, though, there has never been a comprehensive literary work devoted solely to the Original Mets.

Now comes A Year in Mudville, an oral history of the Original Mets, told through the words of those who participated in, or witnessed, the events of that legendary season. This book examines how and why the team was created, the people involved with the first season (not only players, but officials, broadcasters and fans), and why the Original Mets are such a fascinating topic more than four decades after their debut season.

As with any oral history, A Year in Mudville depends heavily on the actual words of the participants derived from numerous interviews with players, fans and journalists who covered the team. A Year in Mudville not only collects virtually all known anecdotes concerning the Original Mets, it also contains many stories never before told in print, as well as sorting out the myths and legends surrounding the team.A Year in Mudville will make an excellent addition to the collection of any baseball fan as well as anyone who remembers and loves the Original Mets.
