WOR-TV Likely Network for New York Mets Games in '62

Nov. 30, 1961 - New York stations WOR-TV and WOR radio said today they had reached “major portions of agreement” in negotiations to broadcast baseball games to be played next year by the New York #Mets, the new National League club. WOR-TV previously established itself as the home of National League baseball in New York, carrying Brooklyn #Dodgers games starting in 1950 and New York #Giants games in 1951 until both teams moved to California following the 1957 season. From 1958 to 1961, the station aired a limited schedule of Philadelphia #Phillies games, consisting of matchups against the Dodgers and Giants.
