Pass or Fail: The New York Mets' 2024 City Connect uniforms

The Mets are one of eight teams debuting City Connect uniforms this season

The New York Mets unveiled their City Connect uniforms on Friday. The team will wear them for Saturday home games beginning April 27.

According to the team, the design process took more than two years of planning before they reached the final result. The Mets' traditional colors of blue, orange and white are replaced on these uniforms by gray and purple.

“It’s all about connecting to New York,” said Mets chief marketing officer Andy Goldberg. “A lot of detail, a lot of focus on this idea that yeah, it’s not orange and blue by design. It’s meant to connect to New York. It’s meant to not just be an alternate Mets uniform. It’s our City Connect. It is how Met fans can represent across the world.”

According to the Mets, the gray symbolizes the "concrete jungle of New York City," and the purple represents the 7 Line train that runs to Citi Field.

The pinstripes on the jersey and pants are made up of circles and diamonds, representing the local and express subway lines of New York City. And the right arm sleeve patch is designed like a New York City subway token.

On the hats is a cross-section of steelwork on the Queensboro Bridge. Inside the hats there is an artist's rendering of the city's subway map.

Player names on the back of the jerseys are in a font the Mets have traditionally used on the front of away jerseys.

Eight MLB teams will debut City Connect uniforms during the 2024 season. Only the New York Yankees and Oakland A's do not have City Connect uniforms.
