1962 was the first year for the New York Mets, the National

League expansion team that Major League Baseball created to replace

the Giants and Dodgers that had moved to California. In 1962, the

Mets, led by manager Casey Stengel, had a record of 40-120, an all

time record for futility. By the way, the Houston Colt '45s, later

re-named the Astros, also joined the National League that year as

the other expansion team. Their record was 64-96 and finished 8th

in the 10 team league, ahead of the Chicago Cubs and the Mets.
