The 2019 MLB All-Star Game was last night. Players from the league showed up to Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio donning some great fits, some terrible fits, and some just plain weird fits. Below is a look at some of the home runs and strikeouts from last night's red carpet.
Your outfit can say a lot about you. New York Mets breakout rookie first baseman Pete Alonso showed up in a floral summer jacket and rose-colored porkpie hat that screamed, "Where's the piña colada?"
Javy Baez, Chicago Cubs infielder, came in his shiniest, 80s R&B group best.
Even though he recently had some choice words about the MLB's acquisition of Rawlings, Astros pitcher Justin Verlander was looking sharp at the Derby with his wife Kate Upton.
The New York Yankees were out in full force, with five of their players cleaned up with their families.
Charlie Blackmon, center fielder of the Colorado Rockies, looked like he was still in the mountains in Denver. He must not have wanted July 4th to be over. When asked what he was wearing, he said, "America."
Cleveland Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor was feeling himself, decked out like a rock star in a loud, blue checkered leather jacket.
Your regular baseball outfit can be too restricting. Sometimes, when you have an opportunity, you gotta wear a blazer with no shirt like Red Sox center fielder and potential royal distant cousin Mookie Betts.
When you're at the top, don't forget where you came from. Atlanta Braves left fielder Ronald Acuna didn't, showing out and repping for Venezuela.
