History set its sights on the 1962 Mets years before the original team ever donned its orange and blue flannels or swung for the Rheingold sign. That first season was destined for the record books as soon as the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants packed up and went west in 1957. Suddenly, the National League town had no National League team, and the city mourned. It took a passionate millionaire five years to bring National League baseball back to New York for a season that will be remembered forever. The team's 120 losses set a new major league record, but that was only half the charm of the Originals. Jilted fans had a team again, and what a team it was: All-Star Richie Ashburn, who quit baseball altogether after that sorry season rather than return to the Mets' losing ways; the quintessential "M.E.T.," Marvin Eugene Throneberry, who came to symbolize the sheer ineptness of the team; Jay Hook, as smart a pitcher as ever lost 19 games; fan favorite "Hot" Rod Kanehl, loved at least as much for his role in a spring training win over the traitorous Dodgers as for his hustle; ex-Dodgers Don Zimmer, Charlie Neal and Gil Hodges; and the Mets' $85,000 bonus baby, Ed Kranepool.

The San Diego Padres became a National League expansion team in 1969. Through 37 seasons of play, the Padres have never won a World Series, never had a pitcher throw a no-hitter, and never had a player hit for the cycle. They have, however, made it to the World Series twice, had three different pitchers win the Cy Young Award, and had a player tie Honus Wagner for most National League batting titles (eight). They almost lost the franchise to Washington, D.C., had an owner take the public address microphone on opening day to blast his own players, and created national headlines when a nationally-known comedienne performed her version of the national anthem before a game.Longtime Padres announcer Bob Chandler knows the details behind all of these stories and shares his memories with San Diego baseball historian Bill Swank in an easy-to-read recap of the team's colorful past. They also look at many other stories: sick and severely dehydrated on the trainer's table, Ken Caminiti had an IV removed from his arm, ate a Snickers bar, then hit two home runs against the New York Mets in Mexico; the comic relief provided by the San Diego Chicken during the Padres lean years; and how popular Padre Tim Flannery became the mascot - a cross between a dinosaur and an anteater.Chandler and Swank utilize their numerous contacts to bring fans many inside stories and humorous anecdotes dating back to the team's actual birth on May 27, 1968. Eight-time batting champion Tony Gwynn and Cy Young Award-winner Randy Jones are among the former players providing insight and inside stories. Chandler's longtime broadcast partner Jerry Coleman, elected to the broadcasters' wing of the baseball Hall of Fame in 2005, has written the foreword. A colorful collection of owners, managers, coaches, and players over the years lends themselves to many interesting tales from the dugout, which all adds up to an informative, insider's look at the behind-the-scenes events that have shaped the history of the San Diego Padres.
