The 2018 MLB All-Star Game is Tuesday, July 17 in Washington D.C., and now we know the caps and uniforms that players will wear.
First up is Monday, which is comprised of the All-Star workout and later the home run derby. On this day the host Nationals’ style and colors come into play, with National League teams wearing red jerseys and caps and American League teams wearing blue. That means we get Dodgers in red:
Those red (and blue) uniforms and caps will also be worn during Sunday’s Futures Game.
For the All-Star Game itself players and coaches will wear their own regular uniforms but with different caps. This year the caps are tri-colored, almost Expos-style, with differing colors for each team. The Dodgers’ cap is a mix of blue, white and gray, with a huge All-Star patch on the left side.
Dave Roberts will manage the NL this year, but it is unknown just who might join him in Washington. Matt Kemp was third among National League outfielders in the first fan voting results release earlier this week. Ross Stripling is making a strong case, and the Max Muncy story could use an All-Star chapter if he keeps this up.
The Dodgers who do end up in D.C. will get to wear these socks.
