What was the New York Mets win loss record in 1962?
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.
