New York Mets in “Los Mets” Jerseys Tonight

Written By:  •  Friday, August 24, 2012

The New York Mets will honour their Spanish speaking fans for their game tonight against the Houston Astros.

As they’ve done in previous seasons, the Mets will wear uniforms sporting the name “Los Mets”.  The jerseys will be blue with orange piping.  “Los Mets” will be in white in that familiar Mets script across the front.

This is the second time this season the Mets will have worn these jerseys, they did so previously on July 6th.

The 2012 version of the Los Mets uniform is different from previous years… in 2011 the team wore a blue jersey like 2012 with the script across the front in orange instead of white. Prior to 2011 the jersey was the home white (no pinstripes), the “Los” part noticeably smaller than the rest of the script.

    I’m totally fine with making Spanish versions of jerseys, but just adding “los” to something and calling it Spanish is SO STUPID. I like what the Giants and Brewers do; they have jerseys that say “Gigantes” and “Cerveceros”. That works. This doesn’t. This jersey should say “Metropolitanos”.

      If you listen to the Spanish broadcasts, they’re not called “Los Metropolitanos” but “Los Mets”. Just as you rarely hear English broadcasters call them “The Metropolitans” (other than Howie Rose – and even he doesn’t do it that often).

      MadPanda…(Besides…could you imagine trying to fit “Los Metropolitanos” across a jersey?)…

        They could have the jersey say Nueva York, or have “Metros” on the jersey. Dont like when teams put the word “the” in Spanish and think it is “latin”. MLB & NBA, PLEASE get it right next time!!! Like the “Cerveceros”!!

    Shame on the Mets

  • 13owie

    Es stupido! THE Mets don’t f’n say as much.

    Los Mets does not make a lot of sense, even if the broadcasters call them that way and even if this is a nice jersey. I would put Nueva York or Naranja y Azul (Orange and Blue) on the jersey.

  • Hmmm, I thought that THE mets played in THE United States of America

    • Tom USA

      Hell yea Johnny! Well said

  • Crow

    Geez, when will it end with the Mets?

  • Matt

    Want to watch latino sports, move to Mexico or Spain. “Pathetic” is too kind a word to describe my feelings about this blatant pandering.

      f-ing right !

    • John

      Spain and Mexico the only two countries that speak spanish,hey thanx for the info..LOL!

  • Aaron

    When the Mets finally being out their blue alternates, I wonder if they’ll go with white lettering with orange outline as shown above or the other way around. I think either look would be fine. Still trying to decide which way the Mets should go.

    • John

      Orange lettering with white outline is the way to go. It matches the Knicks look and the Mets logo. Ditch the orange headspoon and its a winner (keep the orange sleeve trim).

      • Aaron

        What do you mean by orange headspoon?

  • I like the jersey

    But not the “los”
