Can anyone else think of other times when teams have work their BPs for games? Here's what I've got:

2009(?) - Orioles wear orange BPs to coincide with orange shirt giveaway night.

Early 2000s - Expos wear their BPs against the Phillies on a scorcher of a day at The Vet.

1994 - Cubs wear their BPs in an attempt to break something like an 0-12 start to the season at Wrigley. It didn't work.

The Rays did it a few times when they introduced the new set, but before they had the navy alternate (in Cleveland, I think).

The Phillies did it once in the Murph against the Padres. Either 92 or 93.

Get rid of the black stripe and this would be a great alternate uni for the Mets.

It was '92, when they really sucked. Stan Javier played CF in that game IIRC.

The BPs didn't have NOBs back then either.

That was in 2010, and it was as much to try break a losing streak as it was to coincide with the T-shirt giveaway. It was only a couple of times in April 2010 IIRC.

They might have done it in 2009 too, though, but I don't think so.

The Rays did it a few times when they introduced the new set, but before they had the navy alternate (in Cleveland, I think).

I believe TB wore those jerseys at STL. I might be wrong.

I remember back in 05 I saw the Dodgers play the DBacks and the DBacks was wearing their BP jersey.

Typical Mets -- looks like crap. Want to see them go with a blue alt in the future, just not one that looks as bad as the current BP tops. And wearing the black cap with them was another bad idea.

Pitcher's choice, yes?

Generally, if there isn't a set uniform, like the Rays' sunday home powder blues, or the Jays friday night throwbacks from last season.

I kind of really like royal/orange/black as a scheme, haters gonna hate.
