Welcome to the page for players who have played for both the New York Yankees and the New York Mets

Yankees and Mets: 1962-present (as of 1/3/2011 - Courtesy of the YESNETWORK)

The Dodgers' and Giants' exodus to the West Coast after the 1957 season left the Yankees as the only team in town, breaking the hearts of tens of thousands of loyal fans in the New York metropolitan area. They would get some compensation in 1962 with the addition of the Mets to the National League.

The Mets combined Dodger Blue with Giant Orange and adopted the Giants' interlocking "NY" as their logo. They also took the Giants' former stadium, the Polo Grounds, and Yankee skipper Casey Stengel, who did not have the same degree of success with the Mets that he enjoyed with the Bronx Bombers.

Since their inception, the Mets and Yankees have shared history, and in the 49 years the two teams have co-existed, they have shared 110 players. Pedro Feliciano was the last to join the club (No. 110) when the Yankees signed him on January 3, 2011.

Some of the recognizable names on the list gained fame with both teams. Other names might spark a, "Yeah, I remember him," and others a "Who?"

From Juan Acevedo to Todd Zeile, and many more in between, the list just keeps growing and growing.
