10 LONGEST GAMES IN METS HISTORY

The New York Mets have played some long — and Amazin’ — extra inning games. The longest game in franchise history was played at Shea Stadium on September 11, 1974. In fact, three of the 10 longest games in Mets history were against St. Louis (1974, 2010 and 2015) and the Mets won two of the three marathon games.

Below are the Top 10 longest games in franchise history. How many did you watch?

Mets Rewind
National League baseball in New York was redefined on March 6, 1961 when the New York Metropolitan Baseball Club Inc. formally received a certificate of membership from leave president Warren Giles. Of the 30 Major League Baseball clubs today, the case could be made that no other team has a more compelling franchise history than the New York Mets. From Casey Stengel to Yogi Berra, Marv Throneberry to Tom Seaver, Willie Mays, Tug McGraw, Darryl Strawberry, Dwight Gooden, Keith Hernandez, Bobby Valentine, Pedro Martinez and Matt Harvey, the Mets are loaded with character(s). Then there are the Amazin’ seasons — 1962, 1969, 1973, 1986, 2000, 2006-2008 and 2015 — full of miracles, joy, hope and heartbreak. Mets Rewind is designed for that purpose: To share team history in a distinct and entertaining format. We hope you — the baseball fan — enjoy the content. We encourage you to share your memories.
