first female mascot

Female Mascot. Lady Met. New York Mets.

Lady Met was the first female mascot, introduced in the 1960s on leaflets, flyers, and pennants.  She appeared live with Mr. Met at Shea Stadium, but her appearances stopped in the early 1970s. She made a small comeback in the 2000s by attending special events with her husband, Mr. Met, and their two kids. She also starred with Mr. Met in a “This is Sports Center” commercial in 2003.

Lady Met wears a sweater with her name, Lady Met, across her chest. She is not Mrs. Met, she has her own identity. You go, girl!
