Uniforms of the day: The Mets, as you've never seen them
The Mets on Saturday honored the Brooklyn Royal Giants. You must see the results.
The Mets are facing the Pirates on Saturday (GameTracker), and the two teams honored, respectively, the Brooklyn Royal Giants and Pittsburgh Crawfords. The Pirates looked like teams customarily do when paying uniformed tribute to long-ago Negro League clubs -- the pants were billowy, and the font was wonderfully spare.
The Mets, though ... well, just have a look:
