The New York Mets will be making a couple of small tweaks to their uniforms for the upcoming 2017 season according to a series of Tweets from Michael Baron. Both changes are happening to their two alternate blue uniforms, the home and road versions.
First the “Mr. Met” mascot patch on the sleeve is being removed, this patch only appeared on the two blue jerseys. The patch is being replaced with the New York Mets primary logo which will now match the two blue jerseys with the home pinstripes and the road greys.
The Mr. Met patch was added to both jerseys prior to the 2014 season; despite being removed from the jersey sleeve the Mr. Met logo will remain as it did on their training cap.
Lastly the home alternate cap which had an orange bill since 2013 will now have a blue one. The white outline around the “NY” logo remains and is now the only difference between the standard home and road cap and this new alternate home cap. A photo of this new cap can be seen at the top of this post.
The road alternate cap which features the “NY” logo in silver with an orange outline will remain the same.
Here’s a run-down of all the Mets caps for the 2017 season:
