In 1986, the New York Mets made the entire Big Apple turn its attention to Shea Stadium through their sheer talent, fun-loving attitude and swagger. This rare combination helped them "Make the Dream Work" and catapulted them to a World Series title. Doc was an artist, painting corners for strikes, and Darryl's moonshots were a thing of beauty. Gary Carter took command of both the plate and the batter's box, and characters like NAILS, TUF, and MEX made sure there was no shortage of fun. The '86 Mets endeared themselves to New Yorkers and earned a special place in New York sports history.
