Mets Going Back to Retro-Look Uniforms for 50th Anniversary in 2012 (Picture)
The New York Mets will be celebrating their 50th anniversary next season. Considering they have won less than 80 games in each of the last three seasons, a 50th anniversary celebration might be an opportune time for a little identity change.

You can have a look here at the old uniforms for comparison. It looks like the Miami Marlins won’t be the only NL East team with a new look when baseball resumes. Considering New York and Miami finished fourth and fifth respectively in the division last season, I suppose a change certainly can’t hurt.
Fist pound to Hardball Talk for the heads up on the picture.
