In 1997, Major League Baseball unveiled an exciting new element to the regular season: Interleague Play. Not only do these American League vs. National League matchups create new rivalries, but they give fans an opportunity to see teams and players they’d seldom get to see otherwise. Of all the Interleague Games, few can match the anticipation and intrigue of the Mets and Yankees. These two teams from the Big Apple are certain to bring plenty of fireworks to the ballpark when they get together for a four-game series Aug. 1–4. With your NY Mets vs. NY York Yankees: Interleague Play Ticket Guide you can get a seat to one or more of these thrilling games. Tickets to the Aug. 3 game at Yankee Stadium start at $6.
Dubbed “The Subway Series,” this matchup is believed to be one of the best of all Interleague rivalries. The Yankees lead the regular season series 60-44 and have won the last two games. Last season, the Yankees won four of the six games. The Mets have only won the season series twice since the rivalry was born 19 years ago: 2004 and 2013. In 2013, the Mets swept a four-game series.
The Mets and Yankees also met in the memorable 2000 World Series in which the Yankees won 4-1, capturing their 26th championship.
By the All-Star break on July 12, the Yankees had an even 44-44 record, placing them fourth in the five-team AL East. Meanwhile, the Mets were 47-41, putting them in second place in the NL East, six games behind first place Washington.
Following the All-Star game, the Mets have a difficult task of playing their next nine games on the road. However, that long trip away from home is followed by nine contests in front of their fans at the friendly confines of Citi Field. The Yankees play their first 10 games after the All-Star break away from home.
