With the Mets taking the field in pinless uniforms with blue caps this makes a complete non-black homestand.
The Mets wore blue caps for each game and either the pinstriped or pinless uniforms. No hybrid caps were seen, nor were the black jerseys.
It is believed this is the first such occurrence of this century. There is still a war on the road to be won, and black could always show up next homestand…but for now we celebrate in the streets and cheer the name of Kevin Kierst.
VA Day (Victory in Away Uniforms Day) and total victory will not be won in 2011, but this is a major victory on the homefront.
Enjoy VH Day!
