The Mets are getting a new Single A minor league affiliate this year with the Columbia Fireflies, and the team decided to pay homage to its mascot with a unique feature on the uniforms.
The Fireflies will take the field with glow-in-the-dark accents on players hats and on the jerseys.
This is a cool idea and a good way to get people talking about a new minor league team. That is until you realize how difficult it would be to play baseball in the dark.
