It’s been a little tougher than usual to watch the Mets play on Memorial Day and Independence Day in recent years because the special holiday hats badly clashed with the Mets uniforms. However, if these photos posted by MetsBlog are legit, this year’s caps look to be much more stylish.
This more subtle camouflage look allows the Mets to continue to wear blue and orange on their heads while honoring the country’s soldiers and veterans. I’m not sure what’s up with the black hat. You can’t really see the camouflage on that one (maybe there’s something on the back?), and the Mets have shied away from their black uniforms all season. I’m guessing these hats were designed before the Mets made their uniform intentions clear this season.
Well, hopefully the Mets continue the very pleasant trend of wearing blue hats, no matter what the occasion. We should first be able to see one of these hats in action when the Mets take on the Phillies on Memorial Day next week.
