Let’s go Mets! Let’s paint the town Orange and Blue! Let’s celebrate the National League champs in Queens on Monday, the day before Game 1 of the 2015 World Series. Cheer the Mets sat a Hometown Rally at Queens Borough Hall, 3pm to 5pm.
Queens Borough President Melinda Katz and the Mets organization are hosting the Hometown Rally to cheer on the Amazins’ and their come-fron-behind bid to bring the championship trophy back to Flushing, Queens and all of the Big Apple.
The event will feature family-friendly activities, food and beverages. Blue and orange attire is strongly encouraged, and so is cheering the Mets on their sweeping victory in the National League Championship Series, and encouraging them to face the American League champs, the Kansas City Royals.
The Mets won the World Series trophy in 1969 and 1986. They last time they played in the World Series was in 2000, when they lost to New York’s other legendary baseball team, the Yankees.
New York City used to have two other legendary baseball teams. But the Brooklyn Dodgers moved from Ebbets Field to Los Angeles, and the New York Giants moved from the Polo Grounds to San Francisco. Their loss.
Let’s go Mets!
