History was made Thursday night at Citi Field, with Marysol Castro holding down the public address announcer's booth.
She's the first woman in Mets history to be the voice of the team, and the second woman in Major League Baseball to be an announcer.
"My first dream was to be the shortstop for a New York City ball club. So this is a good second best," she said.
Castro says she's honored that the Mets are taking a lead in the field by putting a woman at the forefront in a profession dominated by men.
It wasn't just a decision based on gender. Castro in her own right is a force to be reckoned with. She has two decades under her belt as a New York City news woman.
"None of this came easily to me," Castro said. "I’ve worked hard my entire life. I’m the youngest of four kids, grew up in New York City, and nothing was ever handed to me. And I worked really hard. I was also very kind to people, and I think that kindness has been returned."
It's a message she wants to send to boys and girls.
While Castro made history, the second new Mets voice is bringing his sports broadcasting lineage to the mic.
Three-time Emmy award-winning sportscaster Colin Cosell is following in his grandfather's footsteps. The legendary Howard Cosell shaped the voice of sports broadcasting.
Cosell says it may be impossible to fill his shoes.
"Maybe, just maybe, I'll be able to do a 'Todd FRAZIER!' he said, a reference to one of Howard Cosell's calls. "But that's about it."
Cosell says he hopes fans will enjoys his style of delivery.
"I get to come to work every day and see my audience right there, and that is just, I mean, a dream come true," he said.
He makes his debut on Saturday.
Together, the two newest voices of the Mets kick off a nine-game homestand for the history books.
