    Well, at least this didnt last. The Mets have done a good enough job of resembeling [email protected]$S lately! Could you imagine the jokes, and comparisons if we still has this mascot?

    I went to about 20 games in 1979 and I can honestly say I have no recollection of the mule.

      According to Wikipedia:

      "Mettle the Mule was a mascot of the New York Mets for a short time starting in 1976. Originally named Arthur, Mettle was renamed as a result of a fan contest. Mettle was kept in a pen near the Met's bullpen in the right field of Shea Stadium."

      For the record, I too don't recall it at all.
      Put it in the books.

        It was 1979, not 1976... and here's a link to a 2010 New York Times article about him:
