Tomorrow at Citi Field there will be a press conference to announce plans for the New York Mets 50th Anniversary celebration. There will be special days to commemorate past Mets players and moments in Mets history. The big news however is the 2012 Mets will look like Mets, dressed predominantly in blue and orange.
Of course this is a blue and orange letter day for The Mets Police who has fought the good fight for a years to bring back the traditional Mets home and road unis , even going as far to concede the use of the dreaded black tops on a limited basis to get the organization to stay strictly blue and orange.
The Mets have gotten the message as the black tops and hopefully the black and the garish black and blue caps will be relics of the past.
More about this tomorrow as I’ve been invited along with other Mets bloggers to attend the presser to get a firsthand look at the new/old uni’s.
I have been called a “Sandy Alderson apologist” by some but I have to hang my Mets cap...
