|I'm not usually into Giants hats in colorways other than black and orange but the combination of dark navy and gym red on the 2014 MLB All-Star Game Home Run Derby cap is mighty snazzy.|
|The left-side patch seems almost painted on here. Not complaining, just an observation! In retrospect, it would have been cool if they honored Prince's hometown of Minneapolis with some purple here.|
|Standard issue Diamond Era materials on the inside but of course I must dock points because the cap was not Made in U.S.A.|
|The red, white and blue batterman seals the deal here even though the cap is imported from China.|
We are one week closer to the 2016 MLB All-Star Game and since last week’s post, there haven't been many new images released of this year's cap and uniform lineup. As of now, the only photo I’ve found of the cap that the players will be wearing during this year's ASG in San Diego is this one:
Oops, sorry about that. The image above is all I see when I think about what these gaudy little stars on the eyelets of the on-field cap that will be worn during this year’s game:
|If there is one thing to be glad about it's that the side patch is at least somewhat different than this crummy patch that the Padres are featuring on this year’s home on-field cap.|
|If Guy Fieri designed a ball cap for MLB that was specifically made to be worn at Walmart and NASCAR rallies, this is what it would look like.|
I hope you enjoyed seeing and learning about these MLB All-Star Game caps from the not-so-distant past and not-too-distant future so please come back next week for another serving of All-Star Game millinery.
And since this year’s All-Star Game will be played in San Diego, I recommend checking out SD Hat Guy’s blog so you can stay on top of any cap happenings related to this year’s All-Star Game host team.
