Mr. Met is the official mascot for Major League Baseball's New York Mets. He is a man with a large baseball for a head. Mr. Met was first introduced in 1963 on the cover of game programs and scorecards, when the Mets were still playing at the Polo Grounds in northern Manhattan. When the Mets moved to Shea Stadium in 1964, fans were introduced to a live costumed version. Mr. Met is believed to have been the first mascot in Major League Baseball to exist in human form. In the mid-1970s, the Metropolitans franchise began to dissolve the Mr. Met mascot. In 1976, he appeared on the cover of the New York Mets Official Yearbook. After that time, he was not utilized in their advertising and he remained absent for almost 20 years. In 1979, after the Mets discontinued use of Mr. Met, the team briefly experimented with a new mascot named "Mettle the mule" that was a living animal that would parade along the foul lines prior to a game.
