METS IN BLACK: PROTECTING SHEA FROM THE SCUM OF THE UNIVERSE
Published December 16, 1997
The Mets, "in an effort to be trendier and to appeal to today's kid-driven sports fashion market," will introduce black into the color schemes of their uniforms this spring, according to David Waldstein of the N.Y. POST. The team will wear an "alternate black hat" with a blue brim and a blue and orange "NY" logo, and "will also wear a black shirt at times." Mets VP & General Counsel David Howard said that there "is no set time" when the Mets will wear the new look, but added, "We want to be perceived as hip and updated to kids. When kids walk around wearing your logo, it's like having a walking billboard" (N.Y. POST, 12/16).
