I don’t know who approved of this but it’s terrible.
I mentioned last night that the MLB All-Star game will feature a unique uniform appearance different from years past. Not only are teams wearing new designed caps for the Home Run Derby, it appeared that they will have specially designed caps for the actual game.
Confirmed by USA Today, players will wear caps modeled after the Twins’ batting helmet from the 1970s. The template will be the same, but the colors and logo are team specific.
Rather than have the players wear their normal cap, the branding and merchandising department appears to have the stranglehold here. I like that at least they kept the team colors and logos here, but this is not necessary. It’s all about making the dollars.
The American League is in red. The National League is in navy blue.
Unlike years past with a custom logo for the National and American League, it’s just a recolored cap.
I’m not feeling it. Heck, even the Rangers cap doesn’t look different from what they already wear.
