The team, which plays in the Florida State League, is the Class A-Advanced affiliate of the New York Mets major-league club.

The team plays at Clover Park, which is currently undergoing a $60 million renovation as part of an agreement with the Mets to continue spring training there for an additional 25 years.[1] Opened in 1988, the park seats 7,347 fans.

They have won the Florida State League Championship five times (1988, 1996, 1998, 2003, and 2006).

Former St. Lucie Mets players currently on the New York Mets roster include Noah Syndergaard and 2014 NL Rookie of the Year[2][3] and 2018 NL Cy Young Award winner[4] Jacob deGrom.

The team announced on June 25, 2017, that Tim Tebow was promoted to the Mets from the Columbia Fireflies, and would play against the Palm Beach Cardinals on June 27.[5]
