Longtime New York Mets mascot “Mr. Met” will be making his regular season on-uniform début in 2014.
The Mets will be adding a patch showing Mr. Met in a running pose, the same logo as what’s currently on their BP caps, to the sleeves of their two blue alternate jerseys. You can see a photo of the new patch on the home blue jersey from a photo on the MLB.com Mets online shop here:
Oddly enough, Mr. Met won’t be the only large baseball-headed running mascot referred to as “Mr.” to be worn on a Major League uniform (such a specific category)… the Cincinnati Reds have had various versions of “Mr. Redlegs” on one uniform or another since 1999.
The familiar skyline logo will still be worn as a patch on the Mets home cream, road grey, and home alternate white jerseys. The new camouflage jerseys use only an American flag on the sleeve.
