The Gulf Coast League Mets are a Rookie- level minor league affiliate of the New York Mets that play in the Gulf Coast League. The team plays at Tradition Field in Port St. Lucie, Florida. The franchise entered the league in 1983 playing their home games in Sarasota, Florida at Twin Lakes Park. The team moved their base of operations to St. Lucie when the league expanded to Florida's east coast.

Gulf Coast League team rosters are thirty-five players, and cannot have more than twelve players over twenty years old, and no more than four players over 21. No player can have more than two years of prior service, excluding Rookie leagues outside the United States and Canada. The team is composed mainly of players who are in their first year of professional baseball either as draftees or non-drafted free agents from the United States, Canada, Dominican Republic, Venezuela, and other countries.

On December 20, 2011, it was announced the Mets would eliminate their Rookie level team due to financial reasons.[1] On November 8, 2012, the Mets announced the re-establishment of a Gulf Coast League team based in Port St. Lucie.[2]
