Mets camo jerseys to debut tonight on Military Monday

Murphy Camo

On the field, Mets players will wear a new camouflage jersey for every Monday night home game at Citi Field starting April 21.  During each Military Monday (April 21, July 7, July 28, September 8, September 15) a Mets player will present the “Veteran of the Game” with a team autographed camouflage jersey.


U.S. Military personnel with active or retired military identification will receive complimentary tickets to Monday night games for themselves and up to three guests.  For the remaining games outside of Military Mondays, the Mets will continue to provide active military personnel with complimentary admission.


Active and retired military with proper identification will also receive a 10% discount off retail items at Citi Field on Military Mondays.


Military Mondays will also extend beyond the ballpark and into the community.  Mets front-office staff, alumni and players will visit a VA Hospital throughout the season to meet the recovering veterans and the dedicated doctors and nurses who care for them.


Military Mondays deepens and expands the franchise’s commitment to supporting active and retired members of the military:

  • The Mets work each season with Wounded Warrior Project to honor a “Veteran of the Game” at all 81 home games at Citi Field.
  • The annual Military Appreciation Day at Citi Field incorporates top military officials, pre-game entertainment, enlistment ceremonies, solider-family reunions and the donation of thousands of tickets to military personnel and their families.
  • Mets Chairman and CEO Fred Wilpon was a driving force behind the creation of Welcome Back Veterans, which provides Posttraumatic Stress Disorder treatment to thousands of returning war veterans and their families. Major League Baseball Charities is a founding partner of the organization, which has raised more than $17 million.
  • In July, the Mets and Major League Baseball upgraded the VA Harbor Healthcare System’s St. Albans Community Living Center to include an outdoor space for residents as part of the All-Star Legacy projects tied to the 2013 All-Star Game.

Chilly day but not “cold”. Breeze is what is making it chilly. Shots from bottom of the first.

Also cool.  A $5 million donation is no joke.

Granderson’s stellar reputation around Illinois-Chicago was cemented long before the final brick was set in place at the school’s new $10 million baseball stadium named for him that he helped fund with a $5 million donation.

Mets outfielder Eric Young Jr. visits kids at Stony Brook Hospital on day off   - NY Daily News

I heard Howie mention this the other night and thought it was really cool by EY.  Days off are precious.

Young, who answered a Twitter request to visit the hospital, spent two hours signing autographs and coloring in books with close to 30 kids, visiting the pediatric wing and the cancer center.
