2021 MLB All-Star Game Uniforms Unveiled, Worn In-Game for First Time

Major League Baseball today unveiled the uniforms that players will be wearing during the 2021 All-Star Game to be held next month in Denver… and yes, I said “worn during” the All-Star Game. We’ll get to that bit of news after we take a look at the designs.

Despite the fact this game was relocated from Atlanta to Colorado at the last minute, they were still able to work in at least a few references to the game being hosted by the Colorado Rockies though it does seem that a few references to Atlanta may have been leftover when it comes to the colours chosen.

The New Era caps will be dark navy blue with each team’s logo on the crown re-coloured red, white, and blue, behind the logo is a purple star with a white mountain peak worked into each point of the star. The 2021 All-Star Game logo is on the right side:

Surprised there wasn't more talk about this, but while the uniforms are just meh to me, I hate the idea of wearing special ASG uniforms instead of each respective team uniform. To me, that was always one of the cool things about the ASG - everyone was representing their own team out there.

A bad idea, poorly executed. And keep those jerseys off my lawn!

Totally worth it to Manfred if he can find even just one rube willing to fork over $100+ for one.

Can I somehow gamble on the uniforms? Then its worthwhile.

Will more people fork over money for these than did for the All Star Warm Up jerseys? I liked they all had the same warm-ups, which were sold, but wore their own on gameday. This is dumb for the sake of being dumb, and I doubt it gets them that much more cash. Also, they kind of suck.

It's not just that they're ugly, but they're so boring. Graphic design is not their passion.

For maybe the first time ever, I agree with Clapper. 100% opposed to this.

Maybe this was a last-ditch effort to make those regional caps look good.

Im not sure what's so bad about the unis. I get that CBL stands for Collective Bargaining Litigation but what does the CR stand for?

Im not sure what's so bad about the unis.

Let's put it this way: First MLB has destroyed all meaningful distinctions between the AL and the NL, and now it's trying to obliterate each team's traditional uniform during its Midsummer showcase event, in the pursuit of yet another bit of chump change.

It's not surprising, though, given 7-inning doubleheaders, the inane extra innings rule, and the same people who keep Pete Rose out of the Hall of Fame now enthusiastically promoting gambling.

I get that CBL stands for Collective Bargaining Litigation but what does the CR stand for?

Colorado Rockies.
