We’ve got some conflicting reports on this, but it seems the Mets may be changing their uniforms for next season.
The first note I saw was a pair of tweets from Bart Hubbuch. In one, Hubbuch noted that the Mets were considering dropping the pinstripe uniforms from the rotation next season.
A few minutes later, he also mentioned that the Mets may be changing their plain, white uniforms to more cream colored ones, a la the throwbacks they wore earlier this season, likely without the huge NY on the front.
In his game notes, Adam Rubin then mentioned a different alternative. He wrote:
The Mets plan to go retro with their pinstriped home uniforms next season. Those uniforms will change to off-white, as they were in the 1960s, from their current bright white. That will also serve to differentiate the pinstriped uniforms from the solid home uniforms, which will remain the brighter white.
Meaning the plain, white uniforms would stay, but be accompanied by cream-colored pinstripe jerseys. Think 1969 uniforms.
All uniforms will still have the drop shadow under “Mets.”
As usual, it looks like we’ll just have to wait and see what happens with the Mets and their garb. If it was up to me (and most Mets fans), they would drop the black jersey from the rotation entirely.
But that’s just me.
