Can't Anybody Here Play This Game? is a book written by journalist Jimmy Breslin chronicling the 1962 New York Mets season.[1][2] The book chronicles the first season for the New York Mets, an expansion team. The title of the book supposedly came from a remark made by Mets manager Casey Stengel expressing his frustration over the team's spectacular ineptitude.
