- However, one vision outweighs all others: the boys in blue .
- It didn’t take long, however, before the Royals established themselves as one of the most successful franchises in baseball.
- That success culminated with the winning of the 1985 World Series.
- Since 1969, the Royals have developed great players that have had fun.
- Along the way, they also have developed a winning tradition.

Mets by the Numbers: A Complete Team History of the Amazin’ Mets by Uniform Numbers
– March 17, 2008
- All pages are intact, and the cover is intact and has some creases.
- This copy may include From the library of labels, stickers or stamps and be an ex-library copy.
- This is a catalog of the more than 700 Mets who have played since 1962, but it is far from just a list of No.
- With coverage of superstitions, prolific jersey-wearers, the ever-changing Mets uniform, and significant Mets numbers not associated with uniforms, this book is a fascinating alternative history of the Amazin’s.
- Ordinary club histories proceed year by year to give the big picture.
- Mets by the Numbers uses jersey numbers to tell the little stories—the ones the fans love—of the team and its players.
- Mets by the Numbers celebrates the team’s greatest players, critiques numbers that have failed to attract talent, and singles out particularly productive numbers, and numbers that had really big nights.
- Has interesting facts and different the way the book is designed by player’s number.
- As the title infers, the chapter layouts of the book follow the Mets number by number.
- You expected much more in the beginning and were very disappointed in the end.
- It is really a reference book and not for casual reading.
- That said, at times it was interesting to see that certain players switched numbers in spring training and changed back before the season began and that is why their baseball card pictures have a different number then their season number.
- That is probably the most exciting part about this book.
- I had so much fun reading this book and learning the history behind who wore what number and all the juicy details that came leaping off the page once you get past the numbers themselves.
- If you like the METS, if you love the METS and certainly if you know anyone else who does, you have just found what to buy for mother’s day, father’s day, graduation or birthdays.
- There’s no way that any METS fan would be less than enthralled with this spectacular book!<
- It’s the best Mets book ever, and I’ve read them all (or at least most of them).
- I was drawn to it by the premise (history of the team by uniform numbers) and I was not disappointed.
- If you are a true fan of the blue and orange, you owe it to yourself to pick up and read this gem.
- Written with great wit and insight and from a different perspective than all of the previously published team histories out there, this book is an absolute joy to read.
- It’s a great read to brush up on your Mets history or to use as a reference guide.
