The 1962 NY Mets
1962 New York Mets
The 1962 New York Mets season was the first regular season for the Mets, as the National League returned to New York City for the first time since 1957. They went 40–120 (.250) and finished tenth and last in the National League, 60 1⁄2 games behind the NL Champion San Francisco Giants, who once called New York home. The Mets' 120 losses are the most by any MLB team in one season since the 1899 Cleveland Spiders. Since then, the 2003 Detroit Tigers have come the closest to matching this mark, at 43–119 (.265). The Mets' starting pitchers also recorded a new major league low of just 23 wins all season.
