On This Day In Baseball...

On November 16th, 1961 Ray Gatto unveiled his design for the Mets logo.  The colors represent the Dodgers and Giants, who had both recently left New York for Los Angeles and San Francisco.  The design is also supposed to represent all five boroughs of the city.  Beginning play as an expansion team in the 1962 season, the Mets posted a 40-120 record, one of the worst in the history of the game.  However, they only took 7 seasons to win their first World Series as the Tom Seaver and the Miracle Mets won the 1969 World Series against the favored Baltimore Orioles
