In at least one way, Mets fans can consider themselves among the luckiest in sports. To make a complete tour of every domestic stop in the system -- from Single-A all the way up to Citi Field --an Amazins rooter need leave the state of New York only once, and one of the Minor League affiliates is right in New York City. The destination that's farthest from the fan base's epicenter is near to its heart: Port St. Lucie, Fla., where the big league club plays its Spring Training games.
