The “New” New York Mets: 1980 Info Guide
New Year, New Mets. The 1980 Mets Information Guide promised a fresh start for “the people’s team” after a last-place finish in 1979. The fresh start included new ownership, led by Nelson Doubleday, Jr. and Fred Wilpon, as well as a skinny 18-year-old draft pick from LA named Darryl Strawberry.
