The New York Mets are headed to the 2015 World Series and, as you can imagine, there's a lot of pressure on the 40 players to take the title. The 2015 NLCS Championship winner's haven't won a world series game in a whopping 15 years, but many believe this could be their year. Fortunately for the Mets starting players and many of the others holding it down in the dugout, they've got a line up of strong women backing them. Meet a few of the wives and girlfriends -- or WAGs -- of the 2015 Mets.
