Major League Baseball unveils 2014 All-Star Game caps

For the first time, players selected to the MLB All-Star Game will wear specially made hats during gameplay.

For the first time in Major League Baseball All-Star Game history, players named to the American and National League teams will wear a new cap specifically designed for the game itself. These caps are inspired by the batting helmet of the 1970s Minnesota Twins, who host this year's game.

Selected players have worn their team's home and road caps since the game's first installment, and since 2000, have worn special edition caps with that year's All-Star Game logo. This year's cap will still have that patch, as well as the gold stars on each side of the silhouetted batter logo on the back, but will feature a completely new design.

The design, which is worn on the company's "Diamond Era" collection caps, is two or three-toned, depending on the team, and features a contrasting, triangular front panel that acts as a nod to the Twins' batting helmet and current batting practice/spring training hat.

"Returning to Minnesota for the first time in almost 30 years, we wanted to honor the Twins history with new ideas and their distinctive batting helmet design from the 1970s made perfect sense," said Tim Bronsnan, Executive Vice President of Major League Baseball.

The hats will be available exclusively at LIDS, New Era, and MLB Shop starting on July 3rd, and will become available at select sporting good and retail stores on July 7th. Images of each team's All-Star Game cap are below.
