DENVER (AP) — The All-Star uniforms were widely criticized on social media as the game was going on. No classic birds-on-a-bat design for the Cardinals at Coors Field, no sweet script for the Dodgers. No brown pinstripes on the shirts for the Padres, no recognizable “NY” logo displayed prominently on the hat for the Yankees. Nowhere close. Bring back the rainbow of colors, many said, with players wearing their own team’s uniforms. The AL wore blue uniforms that remind some of jumpsuits. The NL had an all-white ensemble that has many commenting they look, well, bland. Major League Baseball has a billion-dollar contract with Nike, whose swoosh is displayed prominently on the right side of the uniform just below the collar.
