Message To Fans From Sandy Alderson
Dear Mets Fans:
We are pleased to announce we have hired Terry Collins as our new Manager.
Terry’s a lifelong baseball man who comes with the entire package – leadership, preparation, emotional commitment, and the drive to win. We believe Terry’s knowledge of our players, energy, intelligence, intensity, and direct approach will make an immediate, positive impact both in the clubhouse and on the field.
Terry spent six years as a major-league manager, leading the Anaheim Angels and Houston Astros to winning records and second-place finishes in his five full seasons. He managed the Angels from 1997-1999 and the Astros from 1994-1996, compiling an overall record of 444-434 (.506).
We will introduce Terry to the media this morning during a press conference at 11:00 a.m. at Citi Field. SNY and Mets.com will carry it live.
Terry will work closely with the Baseball Operations department with the goal of delivering a team of which you can be proud in the short and long term.
Thanks for your ongoing support and interest.
