This is a nice touch.
To commemorate the life legacy of “Le Grande Orange”, Rusty Staub, the Mets have decided to add a patch to be worn for all remaining Mets games this year. The patch, which will be opposite the Mets skyline patch, features Rusty’s signature in orange on a black backdrop.
This is the first commemorative patch since the Ralph Kiner patch back in 2014. Kiner’s logo remains with the rest of the retired numbers over the Promenade level in left field.
While not currently on-sale, it is probable that these patches will go on sale soon, with the proceeds going towards an applicable cause.
