When it matters, Mets stumble

The Mets are known to reach out to the Hispanic community.  However, when they visit Arizona to play the Diamondbacks from July 19-21, they will not wear the Los Mets jersey to protest the Arizona immigration law. Instead they will don the jerseys on August 13 and September 17. For a team that reaches out to the Hispanic community, there’s really no better way to show their support. I know they already planned to wear the jerseys in the two other games but this is their chance to protest that the immigration law isn’t right. Of course, the not everyone disagrees with the law but it just doesn’t make any sense to wear the jerseys to celebrate days such as Hispanic Heritage Month and not in Arizona. The Major League Baseball Players Association has also disapproved  law.
