New York Mets Wiki


Ya Gotta Believe was a catchphrase used and created by New York Mets pitcher Tug McGraw. This phrase was used to cheer the Mets fans and encourage the team in tough times. McGraw started using it in 1973 when the Mets played poorly near the end of the season and miraculously made it to the 1973 World Series but lost it in the end to the Oakland Athletics.

This phrase is a common one for any one to use. The Mets were the first and only team to use this phrase as encouragement for anything in support.
