Special caps with horizontal stripes for MLB All-Star Game
NEW YORK (AP) Players will wear special caps with horizontal stripes for the All-Star Game at Cincinnati on July 14.
Major League Baseball and New Era said Wednesday each cap will have two stripes. It is patterned after the caps worn by Cincinnati's players in the 1880s and 1890s.
MLB started using special All-Star caps last year, when the design was based on the 1970s batting helmet of the host Minnesota Twins.
