Photos: Mets at Polo Grounds

While the Mets reside in a replica of a long-gone stadium in which they never played, their history in the Polo Grounds is all but forgotten. The Mets played in the New York Giants abandoned home for two years until Shea Stadium was ready in 1964. Here are some photos of the Mets in their original home.
