162-0:
Imagine a Mets Perfect Season
By Howie Karpin
Foreword by David Wright

 

Even the greatest baseball teams lose 30 percent or more of their games each season. The New York Mets have put together some very impressive regular season records in recent history, including playoff berths in 2000 and 2006.

 

But imagine, New York fans, a year in which the Mets never lose a single game. An undefeated regular season including a season-long sweep of the whole NL East...perfection at its greatest! Author and New York sports reporter Howie Karpin envisions just that in his new book 162-0: Imagine a Mets Perfect Season.

 

Karpin chronicles the most memorable victories on each and every single day of the baseball calendar season, including:

 

• October 27, 1986 - The ‘86 Mets of destiny clinch the franchise's second World Championship in front of a jubilant Shea crowd of over 55,000
• September 21, 2001 - The first major sporting event in a post-9/11 New York City, an emotional 3-2 win over the Braves
• July 9, 1969 - Tom Seaver comes within two outs of a perfect game against the Cubs, a bookmark to the Miracle of ‘69
• September 20, 1973 - Willie Mays bids farewell before the "ball on the wall miracle" that propelled the Mets in ‘73

 

Ranging from games with incredible historical significance to great individual Mets achievements, 162-0: Imagine a Mets Perfect Season is a classic must-have for Mets fans that reflects back on the greatest moments in NY Mets lore and ponders the impossible...a perfect season both at home and on the road.
