Mets Unveil New Blue-And-Gray Uniforms For Fans
NEW YORK—In a move that has reportedly caused widespread confusion among New York Mets fans, the team unveiled a new set of blue and gray jerseys Wednesday for the 2016 season. “We wanted to make sure that our fans were able to get their look on the jerseys without any confusion, so we’ve made the decision to switch to grey and black,” said Mets manager Charlie Manuel, explaining that the team’s uniforms will be a bright and comfortable shade of black that is designed to blend in with the team’s other uniforms, while keeping the uniform’s name and number on the front of the jersey a welcoming reminder to the public. “We’re excited to see what fans will think about these new uniforms. After the first few games, we’ve already received hundreds of emails and text messages, and we’re confident that they’ll be excited about the color scheme, the jersey’s design, and also the fact that the new jerseys will be the first black uniforms in the franchise’s history.” Manuel added that if the uniform looks like it’s going to make fans uncomfortable, they should just skip to the next page.
