    It's short for Metroploitans. The Metropalitans were actually a team from 1880-1887 who played at the Polo Grounds before Baseball became popular. They weren't really getting much attention and they were a struggling team, The Brooklyn Dodgers bought them as a AA affiliate.

    In 1962, to replace the Dodgers and Giants and bring NL Baseball back to NY, William A. Shea decided to make the New York Mets. The term "Mets" is their official team name. It is short for Metropolitans, since they are in a metropolitan area. However, their official team name isn't the New York Metroploitans, even though that's what it stands for.

    Agreed. I have nothing against the Mets but the Yanks have a richer history & they have a stronger fanbase. Many(but not all) so called Met fans are just jumping the bandwagon all of a sudden claiming they been Met fans forever while not even knowing one player from the team. I respect the real Met fan the one who went to the games when you couldn't even give away their tickets for free.Those fans i give respect to & those real fans I'm happy for their teams recent sucess.

    Short for "Metropolitans", which was a 19th Century New York baseball club.

    The name is short for Metropolitans. See the attached link, it was selected in 1961, the year before they began play.

    They should change the name and the team colors and get rid of the pinstripes.
