The Rockies are wearing throwbacks on Tuesday, will the Mets?

@brianerni noticed the Rockies tweeted that they will wear throwbacks for their game against the Mets on 4/16.

Will the Mets also wear throwbacks? ┬áBrian theorizes….

mets rockies throwbacks maybe

 

Traditionally the Mets keep throwback uniforms a state secret so expect to hear about this around 5pm on Tuesday.

And of course Monday is Jackie Robinson Day so everyone will wear 42.

Dang it, I can never get this HTML to do what I want it to do. Click on the 2nd paragraph in my above comment for a photo of Homer the Beagle's pennant.

I've always loved those road tops If it weren't for the historical nod to the Giants, by all means that SHOULD be the font on the greys, as it matches the Mets usual script (check out ol' ). Back when these came out, I thought the sleeve stripes were a little too 1970s, but the '94s with bare sleeves honestly looked a little naked. They probably should've split the difference and gone with some piping.

I know I'm in the minority, but I always liked the 1993-94 road script, although the jerseys would have looked exponentially better without the white trim, and with added headspoon piping. It'll be cool to see these again for one night, although I agree with osh41 that commemorating that particular season is questionable at best, even if it is the home team's promotion.

don't see why the mets would want to wear anything that would remind you of a 59-103 season.
