Mets by the Numbers : A Complete Team History of the Amazin' Mets by Uniform Number
by Jon Springer and Matthew Silverman and Howie Rose


Overview - Unlike typical team histories that proceed chronologically, "Mets by the Numbers" is the first and only book that examines the team and its players by ascending uniform number, or from 1 (Mookie Wilson) to 99 (Turk Wendell).
This newly revised edition is a catalog of the more than 1,000 Mets who have played since 1962, but it is far from just a list of No.

More About Mets by the Numbers by Jon Springer; Matthew Silverman; Howie Rose
 
 
 
Overview
Unlike typical team histories that proceed chronologically, "Mets by the Numbers" is the first and only book that examines the team and its players by ascending uniform number, or from 1 (Mookie Wilson) to 99 (Turk Wendell).
This newly revised edition is a catalog of the more than 1,000 Mets who have played since 1962, but it is far from just a list of No. 18s and 41s. "Mets by the Numbers" celebrates the team s greatest players while critiquing numbers that have failed to attract talent, as well as singling out those that have been particularly productive.
With coverage of superstitions, prolific jersey-wearers, the ever-changing Mets uniform, and significant Mets numbers not associated with uniforms, "Mets by the Numbers" captures this fascination. A valuable reference for the casual fan, and a must-have accessory for Met geeks, this alternative team history sheds new light on the familiar and the forgotten, while finding the answers to questions that may have never before been asked. (Like which uniform number accounted for the most home runs in Mets history?)
