The Mets’ Single-A affiliate, which calls St. Lucie, Florida home, is trying to put those LeBron James Miami Heat jerseys — no longer wanted by a majority of fans given the superstar’s decision to return to Cleveland — to good use.

The St. Lucie Mets are willing to swap tickets to all remaining home games this season (25) for fans’ James jerseys. The Mets are also throwing in a cup and a t-shirt to sweeten the deal.

What are they going to do with all of those jerseys? They’ll donate them to Goodwill. Seems like a win-win all-around.

    The marlins should do it too. Might get some fans to the game

      That’s expecting a lot from the Marlins – giving away free tickets and a donation to charity.

      Why all the thumbs down? He(or She)at least tried to have an opinion and express it about baseball and He(or She) is a PFT commenter that is branching out to another sport.

      I see an awful lot of automatic thumbs down just because of football handle and I think we need
      more fans starting to contribute to the baseball discussion even though it might be thier least favorite
      sport.Go to Deadspin or KSK and they hate baseball.At least He(or She) is branching out.

      Tl/dr:Please do not make the mistake of assuming just because the name is football oriented
      that they don’t know anything about baseball.Give them a chance to educate themselves about the great game without rancor and perhaps they will become one of us and the comments will hopefully show us a different way of thinking.

    So you could do it then buy a jersey at goodwill for almost nothing sounds good

    25 games for one jersey? They’re dirt cheap on ebay, I’d be getting a family pack if I lived down there. Great deal.

    How much is parking and food?

    • jwbiii - Jul 11, 2014 at 9:43 PM

      Parking is free. If the cost of ballpark food bothers you, eat before or after.

      A lot less than it would be in the What Exit State.

    I want to see the Cavs fans who are now buying replacement LeBron jerseys for the ones they burned. How can you not feel like a total jackass doing that?

    • jimeejohnson - Jul 12, 2014 at 3:26 AM

      I beg to differ even though I totally agree: they felt great burning those old jerseys, and now they feel great buying the new ones. Stupid, really, and they should feel like jackasses!

      I loves the picture of this kid reviving his old, burnt James jersey: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2127250-fan-wears-tattered-lebron-james-cavaliers-jersey-to-baseball-game-after-return

      That’s the way to do it. Show your pride, while acknowledging the past!

    Looks like a good deal all around to me. The only problem is this–Who’s going to buy those jerseys at the Goodwill stores?
