NEW YORK - The Mets triumphantly returned to Citi Field Thursday, a day after completing a four-game sweep of the Chicago Cubs to win the National League pennant.

The Mets will return to the World Series for the first time since 2000.

Fans lined up hours ahead of the Mets' arrival for a chance to glimpse the players. They delivered a loud welcome when the team finally arrived.

The Mets will face either the Toronto Blue Jays or the Kansas City Royals in the World Series next Tuesday. Whichever American League team wins will automatically have home-field advantage due to the outcome of the All-Star Game.

The Royals currently lead the American League Championship series 3-2.
