Metros de San Juan Game-Worn Jersey Correa Puerto Rico Batting Practice – COA 100% Authentic Team
The Senadores club was founded in 1938 and played intermittently in the Liga de Béisbol Profesional de Puerto Rico, the predecessor to the current Liga de Béisbol Profesional Roberto Clemente. For the 1984–85 season, the Vaqueros were moved back to San Juan and re-adopted their original name, Senadores de San Juan. However, one year later they were rechristened as the Metros de San Juan, a name that they conserved until 1994.
Presented is a vintage Puerto Rican league Metros (Metros de San Juan) batting practice jersey. The jersey is a pull-over and features the New York Mets colors blue, orange and white. The front logo is screened on orange/white “Metros”. The jersey shows strong wear throughout. The collar tag is particularly worn but shows the manufacturer Marcus and [size] XL. The notation “CORREA” is written in black felt tip on it. A large Gatorade sponsor patch is sewn-on the back also with the notation Correa.
Presumably, this was worn by a player with the last name Correa. Matching the era of the jersey is an Ed Correa who was a pitcher in the Chicago White Sox and Texas Rangers organizations in the 1980’s. Correa went on to found a Baseball Academy and High School in Puerto Rico.
