The REAL Mr. Mets

Mr. Mets wasn't the only member of the Amazing Mets to visit the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair. In fact, he was there with his boss, famous manager Casey Stengel. Stengel had been the long-time manager of the New York Yankees, then after sitting out one season he took over the new Mets franchise. The team didn't do well those first years, but Stengel was a beloved figure in NY baseball and was a big help to eventually making the Mets successful. Here he's being interviewed outside the Hall of Free Enterprise at the Fair.
