Mets to Wear New Camouflage Jerseys During Monday Night Home Games at Citi Field

Complimentary Tickets to Military Personnel and Guests,

Mets Front-Office Staff, Alumni and Player Visits to VA Hospitals

Deepens Mets’ Commitment to Military

FLUSHING, N.Y., November 11, 2013 – The New York Mets today announced the franchise will salute U.S. service men and women with Military Mondays during the 2014 season at Citi Field with complimentary tickets, retail discounts and community outreach events.


The Mets will celebrate the announcement of Military Mondays with Mr. and Mrs. Met marching alongside hundreds of veterans from the Wounded Warrior Project in America’s Parade up Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. America’s Parade is the largest event in the country honoring those brave men and women who have defended our freedom.


On the field, Mets players will wear a new camouflage jersey for every Monday night home game at Citi Field starting April 21.  During each Military Monday (April 21, July 7, July 28,September 8, September 15) a Mets player will present the “Veteran of the Game” with a team autographed camouflage jersey.


U.S. Military personnel with active or retired military identification will receive complimentary tickets toMonday night games for themselves and up to three guests.  For the remaining games outside of Military Mondays, the Mets will continue to provide active military personnel with complimentary admission.


Active and retired military with proper identification will also receive a 10% discount off retail items at Citi Field on Military Mondays.


Military Mondays will also extend beyond the ballpark and into the community.  Mets front-office staff, alumni and players will visit a VA Hospital throughout the season to meet the recovering veterans and the dedicated doctors and nurses who care for them.


Military Mondays deepens and expands the franchise’s commitment to supporting active and retired members of the military:

  • ·         The Mets work each season with Wounded Warrior Project to honor a “Veteran of the Game” at all 81 home games at Citi Field.
  • ·         The annual Military Appreciation Day at Citi Field incorporates top military officials, pre-game entertainment, enlistment ceremonies, solider-family reunions and the donation of thousands of tickets to military personnel and their families.
  • ·         Mets Chairman and CEO Fred Wilpon was a driving force behind the creation of Welcome Back Veterans, which provides Posttraumatic Stress Disorder treatment to thousands of returning war veterans and their families. Major League Baseball Charities is a founding partner of the organization, which has raised more than $17 million.
  • ·         In July, the Mets and Major League Baseball upgraded the VA Harbor Healthcare System’s St. Albans Community Living Center to include an outdoor space for residents as part of the All-Star Legacy projects tied to the 2013 All-Star Game.


The new Mets camouflage jersey will go on sale exclusively at the Mets Team Store at Citi Field Friday, November 22. says that there will be cap caps with a blue (not orange) NY.

  1. I don’t like. It doesn’t honor the military, wounded warriors or riveters named Rosie. Very little money goes to the charities, and it enforces a militarism in our culture.

    People say sports and politics shouldn’t mix. That only seems to be when progressive politics — certain communities’ rights, or Chris Kluwe’s commentary — are being discussed.

    Honestly, when we see photos of big stadium card displays in North Korea or China, we giggle about the ridiculously propaganda, and can’t the citizenry see what self-aggrandizing nonsense it is?

    I’m not comparing the two countries, and I’m lucky I get to live here and type this missive. Still, the “we’re the mightiest nation on Earth” sentiments are pretty similar.

    Aesthetically, camo looks awful. It certainly fails when backing the Mets royal and orange.

    If the Mets want to honor recovering vets, just give a chunk of dough to deserving organizations. This “HEY, HEY, WE’RE PATRIOTIC TOO LOOK AT US LOOK AT US LOOK AT US” tripe is embarrassing. But it’s the Mets, and we call it “Monday.”

  2. Agree with Scott. Philosophically, its a joke and realistically exploitative. Aesthetically, its terrible as camo looks hideous all the time and even worse mixing with a blue and orange. This is offensively bad.

  3. Totally agree with Scott. It’s embarrassing and just a little scary.
    As a neutral who goes to the Mets because they’re the more likeable team in NYC, I will now rethink.

  4. Would much, much, much prefer the Mets wear black jerseys with hybrid caps than these horrid “patriotic” excuses to sell more merchandise. At least the reasoning for the Mets wearing/expanding their team colors to include black made sense (even if you dislike the reasoning, it was at least there), as their predecesors the Giants were black and orange (along with the Brooklyn Dodgers blue). There is no excuse for this and it is an epic fail on behalf of a team that should know better. Why couldn’t the Mets just “turn back the clock” and use the red, white and blue uniforms of the 1940-46 Giants as a model if they were feeling underpatriotic instead of uniforms more useful on an episode of Duck Dynasty?

  5. Hate it. I always ridiculed the San Diego Padres for starting that tacky tradition, but at least it is understandable since they are a military town and, well – they’re the Padres. They know how to do tacky really well.

    Leave it to the Mets to want to follow the trendsetting Padres. What a joke. BTW, I am a lifelong Mets fan and a vet and I do not think it honors the military or veterans. Plus it is just a really bad look.

  6. I’m with Scott and everyone on down. Hideous, and it looks more like the Mets (or any other team) playing dress-up than any team “honoring” military veterans. I’m all for honoring our veterans, like the Veteran of the Game they already feature, and events in the community. But this: UGH.

    Look at that press release — much of what they’re doing on Military Mondays they already do (a Veteran of the Game, free admission for the vets). This just looks like a way to make money — selling jerseys, giving free admission to three others who come with members of the military (that’s up to three more people who will then buy concessions), a 10% discount on merchandise (which may prompt them to buy something they might otherwise not purchase) and, of course, jerseys that anyone can buy.

    At least it’s only five games — and gee, might Mondays be among the worst-attended games in any given week?
