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

    When the Mets Had Mettle (New York Times, 2/26/10)

    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.

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