New York Mets fans won't have to travel far to see their farm club! Details are being finalized for the plan involving the purchase of the Triple A minor league team in Syracuse.

The Syracuse Chiefs have been the farm club of the Washington Nationals for the past few years and soon will be the affiliate of the New York Mets.

Governor Cuomo and U.S. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer are on board with the Mets buying the Syracuse Chiefs. If a majority of stockholders approve it, the Chiefs will be the Mets' minor-league affiliate.

The deal would be effective for eight years starting in 2019.
