The Columbia (S.C.) Fireflies, the New York Mets new Single-A South Atlantic League affiliate, officially unveiled their uniforms for their inaugural season at a press conference yesterday.
The team gave fans a sneak peak at their caps, which glow in the dark, last week on National Hat Day.
The Fireflies, scheduled to open their home schedule at their new ballpark on April 14th, will be managed by Jose Leger. His staff will include Jonathan Hurst, a former MLB pitcher for both the Mets and Montreal Expos, Joel Fuentes and Alex Tavarez. Kiyoshi Tada will be the team’s athletic trainer.
What do you think of the new uniforms? I like the glow-in-the-dark element, but I’m not sure I’m a big enough fan of either logo to be tempted to buy a cap.
