Here’s To 8,000, And To 8,000 More
Tonight’s game against the Miami Marlins will be the 8,000th regular season game in Mets franchise history.
The Mets are have a won-loss record of 3829-4162 with eight ties in their history going into tonight.
Johan Santana will take the mound as millions of Mets fans will dream the impossible dream – a Mets no-hitter.
Brian Costa of The Journal reports that there have been 252 no-hitters in the majors since 1876 — and 131 since the Mets debuted in 1962.
It’s been an Amazin’ ride for the Mets; rich with a history of the most glorious highs and exhilarating victories to the most crushing lows and agonizing defeats.
From their very first game when opening day starter Roger Craig fired the very first pitch for those Lovable Losers, through tonight when a new ace, Johan Santana, leads an exciting group of overachieving players who nobody gave a chance to (well we did), the Mets have held an enduring love affair with their adoring fanbase.
Here’s to 8,000 and to another 8,000 more…
