MLB's All-Star uniforms have plenty of Washington D.C.-inspired flair

The Major League Baseball All-Star game is in Washington D.C. this year, so what sort of style can you expect from the uniforms? A bit of classic Americana mixed with D.C. flair.

The All-Star game and Home Run Derby are two of the growing number of events for which baseball players get to sport new styles — with Home Run Derby often looking a little more hip and the All-Star game going a bit more classic.

The uniforms — complete with caps by New Era and socks by Stance, plus workday day jerseys — were unveiled Friday. Let’s have a look:
