Pete Alonso celebrates no longer having to wear Players’ Weekend jerseys
MLB’s Players’ Weekend is over, which means teams will go back to wearing their normal uniforms after the controversial black and white jerseys they donned over the weekend.
Given the widespread dislike of the uniforms, this is good news for many. Count New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso as one of them. The standout rookie openly celebrated the fact that he would no longer have to wear the jerseys in a post to his Instagram account.
There you have it. Alonso has extra reason to hate them: they were a bad luck charm for the Mets, who were swept at home by the Atlanta Braves.
The uniforms have received widely negative reviews throughout the game. It doesn’t seem as though anyone is going to be too sad to see them go.
