Take a look at what your New York Mets will be wearing.

The Mets will not be donning the typical blue and orange on special occasions this season. The Mets, along with the rest of Major League Baseball, will be wearing special caps and uniforms on Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Memorial, Day, and the Fourth of July. Special caps will be worn during the All-Star festivities as well.

This Mother’s Day cap will be paired with jerseys that have a touch of pink as well. In years past some players have opted to use a pink bat, and pitcher Jerome Williams used a pink glove to honor his mother, who died of breast cancer.

For Memorial Day, baseball will honor those that have served by wearing camouflage themed uniforms.

Fourth of July will feature red, white, and blue uniforms. The fireworks will be up to the offense to provide.

The All-Star gear for Workout Day and the Home Run Derby will have a bit of Miami flair to them. They mimic the black Marlins cap, since Miami will be hosting the All-Star game this year.

The All-Star Game uniforms will have one other change. Players will get to flaunt how many All-Star appearances they have under their belt. A star patch has been added to the sleeve, and within that star there will be a number indicating how many All-Star appearances the player has made.

Of course, all baseball caps already underwent a tiny change this season: They now have the New Era logo on the side that debuted in the playoffs last season.
