Will The Mets Wear The Black Uniforms Again In 2020? Pete Alonso And Marcus Stroman Want To.

We’re about to embark on the 2020 baseball season in Queens. Expectations will be high coming off last year’s late-season surge. We’ll also have a new, familiar-faced skipper in Carlos Beltrán. But 2020 also marks the 20th anniversary of one of the better moments in franchise history:

 

While we can’t bring back the likes of Mike Piazza, Al Leiter, and so many others that helped shape those early 2000s teams, there are rumblings of something else from that era that could make a comeback:

Bringing back the black unis would be a fitting way to honor the 2000 National League Champions. And while Stro and Pete seem to be all for it, #MetsTwitter has your expected variety of takes:

There have even been some polls that are overwhelmingly for bringing them back in some fashion:

Howie Rose, who has a Twitter account that has yet to be revealed, passed his 2 cents over to Maj from the Mets Booth:

Do I love the black unis? No. But as mentioned earlier, they do invoke a sense of nostalgia. They remind us of the Mike Piazza days, Robin Ventura’s walk-off grand slam single, and the beginning of Wright and Reyes in the infield. I say we bring them back. How often? We turn again to the Polar Bear:

If the players make enough noise, the team will have to listen. My guess is that we’ll see them this year for more than one game. It would be a fitting way to honor the Mets teams of yesteryear as well as shake things up with a new manager coming in. In any sense, we can all agree on one jersey to never bring back:
