On Tuesday, MLB unveiled the Special Event uniforms that all teams will be wearing throughout the season on applicable days. Let’s look at the Mets uniforms.
We all know how special uniforms are created for special days. It’s both a great business opportunity, as well as a great way for MLB to give back to charity both financially and by raising awareness.
These are the special uniforms that the Mets will be wearing this season — in honor of Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, Father’s Day, Independence Day, and of course the All-Star festivities. In fact, the Mets actually have two different caps for this — one for the Home Run Derby, and another for the All-Star Game.
This is the first time that every MLB club will spend the entirety of the weekend of which the holiday falls upon wearing the allotted special uniform.
It’s important to note that proceeds of these uniforms will be donated to four different charities. Proceeds from the Mother’s Day uniforms will go to Susan G. Komen, for breast cancer. Proceeds from the Father’s Day uniforms will go to Prostate Cancer Foundation. Proceeds from both the Mother’s Day and Father’s Day uniforms will go to Stand Up to Cancer. And proceeds from the Memorial Day and Independence Day uniforms will go to MLB Charities, which supports a wide array of charities and programs.
Do any of these special uniforms look like something that you need in your closet? I have to admit, I like the Memorial Day one more than I thought I would. Maybe that’s because I will forever have the Mets Military Monday camo jerseys engrained into my head.
