Usually new uniforms are met with mostly enthusiasm and excitement.

That certainly was not the case for the 2021 MLB All-Star jerseys on Thursday.

MLB opted for a new look in 2021, going with specially-designed league outfits instead of club uniforms and caps for the All-Star Game.

The host National League has white jerseys and the American League blue. Each two-button jersey features three red letters for a player’s club arranged vertically on the left side with the club logo superimposed over the first and second letter, in black or white for NL teams and khaki for AL.

Stars on the back will mark each player’s All-Star selection total, and the right sleeves have the MLB All-Star logo patch.

Caps have team logos mostly in red, with some white and blue, superimposed over a star in the Rockies’ purple with white points.

The new-look All-Star jerseys certainly went through the wringer on Twitter:
