 NEW YORK (AP) - The Mets will wear camouflage jerseys for five home games next year as part of a ''Military Monday'' event that will include free tickets for U.S. servicemen and servicewomen.
The team said Monday that the jerseys will be used April 21 against St. Louis, July 7 vs. Atlanta, July 28 against Philadelphia, Sept. 8 vs. Colorado and Sept. 15 against Miami.
New York has worked with the Wounded Warrior Project in recent years, and owner Fred Wilpon helped create the Welcome Back Veterans program that provides treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder.
The San Diego Padres have worn camouflage jerseys for Sunday home games since 2008 in honor of military based in their community, and the Baltimore Orioles used camouflage jerseys on Memorial Day and Flag Day this year.
