PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- The St. Lucie Mets unveiled their exciting new logo and uniforms for the 2013 season at the team's Booster Club Meeting on Monday, December 17.
The St. Lucie Mets, which will celebrate their 25th anniversary in team history in 2013, will have a new look for the first time since 2001. The logo features more orange and a Florida version of Mr. Met. The Mets unveiled three uniforms and three hats.
"We thought it was a good time with our 25th anniversary coming up in 2013," said Paul Taglieri, Mets Director of Florida Operations. "We wanted to stay with what the big club was doing and also add our own touches to it."
The new primary logo displays the scripted words "St. Lucie Mets" in orange on a piece of driftwood, which includes a palm tree and the sun to the right.
The former logo had the words "St. Lucie Mets" in blue next to a palm tree with a baseball in the sun.
The Mets moved the black away from the uniform and it now has more of a Florida effect.
The Florida Mr. Met has a blue Hawaiian shirt with the scripted "Mets" across and also features blue sunglasses, orange shorts, and sandals. The Florida Mr. Met patch will be used on the sleeve of all uniforms during the season.
The St. Lucie Mets home jersey is white with the "Mets" scripted across the front in orange. The road jersey will feature all gray and "St. Lucie" scripted across the front. Both jerseys have blue numbers on the front.
The St. Lucie Mets batting practice jersey is blue with the St. Lucie logo on the side of the uniform.
The St. Lucie Mets home hat is blue with an orange brim with "SL" lettering in a more curved look. The road hat is all blue with orange lettering while the batting practice hat is all orange with blue lettering.
The St. Lucie Mets, which have won five Florida State League Championships, will host the Jupiter Hammerheads on Thursday, April 4 at 6:30 p.m. to kick off the 2013 season.
