I apologize for not seeing who was first to point it out, but Twitter started circulating the following jersey from Mets.com, which shows that Mr. Met will replace the All-Star Game patch on next year's blue alternate uniform. This jersey debuted for the Mets in 2011, when they wore them once for Los Mets night. However, that uniform had the Mets logo as the patch. I'm happy to now see Mr. Met, who was also used last season on the team's batting practice cap...
My appreciation for Mr. Met has grown since having a daughter, because I totally see now how he helps make Mets fans out of little kids. My wife is a Yankees fan, but her seemingly bland, black and white apparel can't hold a candle to my colorful, fun-looking Mets gear, especially when teamed with Mr. Met, who my two-year-old girl knows by name and thinks is adorable. She also gets the biggest kick out of the Mets bobble head collection in my home office.
