Nike and Major League Baseball had a lot of concerns about last year’s All-Star uniforms.
For the first time since 1933, players wore a jersey with their league name in place of their team. The shirts featured a three-letter abbreviation for the team, with a two-button henley look and floral trim on each sleeve.
“I don’t know if I really like that,” Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner said at last year’s game. “Wearing a Dodger uniform on the field for an All-Star game is something to be proud of.”
On Monday, Nike and MLB unveiled (and put on sale) the 2022 All-Star jerseys. The league jerseys are gone and every player wears a jersey with their team name on it.
However, the players will not wear their actual team jerseys. The National League jerseys are white and the American League jerseys are dark gray, but the team name is rendered in gold.
On the back, the player’s name and number are also shown in gold.
“The club-specific chest graphic is modeled after the gold sheen of Hollywood awards shows,” said a Nike announcement.
The All-Star jerseys will be provided by City Connect’s uniform staff. According to Nike, this jersey is “inspired by the fame and fortune of the City of Angels”.
The All-Star Game takes place on July 19th at Dodger Stadium.
