Major League Baseball hasn’t yet unveiled the uniforms for this year’s All-Star Game, which will be played in Seattle. But we now have our first look at two examples of the ASG caps, thanks to a Chicago-centric website that has prematurely listed the headwear for the Cubs and White Sox.
The designs match the motif of the Rangers’ All-Star workout cap, which leaked last month. In case you’ve forgotten, here’s what that one looked like:
We only had that one screen shot of the Rangers’ cap, so it wasn’t clear whether the chevron design on the side wrapped all the way around the cap. Based on the newly leaked Cubs and White Sox ASG caps, it does not wrap around:
In addition, the MLB logo on the back of the caps is rendered in Mariners colors:
Some of you may be thinking to yourself, “Wait a minute — the Cubs and Sox are in opposite leagues. Shouldn’t they have different cap colors?” I actually thought that myself for a moment, until I remembered that all of last year’s ASG caps were black — only the jerseys and pants were league-colored:
So they’re apparently sticking to that format this year, although it remains to be seen what the colors will be for the rest of the uniforms.
The All-Star Game will be played on July 11. That’s just over three weeks from now, so we’ll presumably see the official uniform unveiling soon.
Update: A bunch of additional ASG caps have appeared on various other retail sites:
In addition, a bunch of additional All-Star workout caps have also appeared, which match the style from the earlier Rangers leak (interesting that they’re going with the Tigers’ road cap logo, even though the game is being played in an American League ballpark):
(Super-duper thanks to Jordan Georgeson, who brought the initial Cubs/Sox leak to my attention.)
