The bright, bold colors that define both the Marlins look and Miami’s atmosphere as a whole will be fully embraced during the city’s (and state’s) first MLB All-Star Game this summer.
The league shared a number of holiday and special-event uniforms with Yahoo Sports, including teal and orange threads for the Home Run Derby, Futures Game and All-Star workout day which look like they came right out of the Marlins’ design book.
Despite the popping color of the jerseys, they actually aren’t the first or second things you’ll notice with the uniforms.
There are special socks — for these uniforms and all holiday apparel — designed by Stance, MLB’s sock partner. The only way these would feel more South Florida-ish is if Udonis Haslem wore them around South Beach with a Dan Marino jersey, a Marlins hat and Heat shorts.
They have a vibrant pattern of flowers, leaves and fish featuring red, yellow, orange and blue that may not work anywhere else, but feels right at home here.
The caps stand out for a different reason. Their look seems pretty tame — save for that same floral design inside of the brim — with a black base and orange logo. But the design sounds perfect for the heat and humidity of summer.
“Caps will be … made of a ‘Honeycomb open-hole mesh’ crown,” Chris Creamer of SportsLogos.net reported. “I tried one on, they’re quite light and very breathable.”
All-Star Week opens with FanFest at the Miami Beach Convention Center starting July 7. The All-Star Game will be played Tuesday, July 11, at Marlins Park.
