Team History[edit]

In 2019, the Syracuse Mets began playing in the International League after the Syracuse Chiefs changed affiliation to become the top farm team of the New York Mets. Following the path set by the Oklahoma City Dodgers a couple of years earlier, they decided to adopt their parent team's nickname instead of the "Chiefs" moniker steeped in the city's baseball history. The parent teams marked the change by coming to Syracuse, NY on March 25th for a practice in front of local fans, an excursion that did not sit well with a few Mets players, notably Noah Syndergaard who complained loudly about the extra travel required before opening day.
