NEW YORK -- The New York Mets will honor their 1986 team on May 28 as part of a weekend of festivities marking the 30th anniversary of the organization's last championship.

The celebration will last the entire year, though. That includes the Mets wearing the distinctive 1986 uniform multiple times during the season as an alternate uniform.

The '86 uniforms included a vertical blue stripe sandwiched between two orange stripes down the sides of the jersey and pants.

As for the May 28 celebration, manager Davey Johnson, the coaches and players all have been invited back for a 6:30 p.m. ET ceremony before the Memorial Day weekend game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Mets also will have a pair of weekend giveaways as part of a three-day celebration. Fans attending the May 27 game will receive an '86-themed T-shirt. And the first 15,000 fans attending the May 29 game will receive an '86 championship replica ring. That game will begin at 8:08 p.m. ET and be televised as part of ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball.
