Trivia: Fans were asked by team officials to choose a nickname when New York was awarded an expansion National League franchise in 1961. The choices included the Avengers, Bees, Burros, Continentals, Jets, Mets, NYBS, Rebels, Skyliners, and Skyscrapers.

The name was chosen for a couple of reasons, one being because “it has a brevity that will delight headline writers” and also because of the nickname’s historical baseball association, known as The New York Metropolitans, often called the Mets. They played in the American Association from 1883 to 1888.
