Many MLB fans were upset with the All-Star Game uniforms again on Tuesday night, but commissioner Rob Manfred remains quite happy with the change.

For the second year in a row, players wore All-Star Game-specific uniforms rather than wearing the appropriate home or away uniform for the team they play for. The National League, which was the home team, wore white jerseys with their team name in gold lettering on the front and their last name on the back. The American League wore charcoal gray.

Manfred was asked about the uniforms before the game. He said he personally disliked when players wore different uniforms during the All-Star Game.

Uniforms are all about money, of course. Manfred may claim he likes the new look better, but all that matters is the earnings. Many fans were quick to criticize the commissioner for his comment.

Individual team shirts won’t be coming back anytime soon. Manfred added that sponsorship logo patches will also be added next year, calling it an “impossible for the sport to ignore in the long term” revenue stream.

Nike took over as MLB’s official jersey supplier in 2020. This led to several unique new looks, many of which were shredded by fans. It seems the majority wants individual team jerseys to return to the All-Star Game, but Manfred will likely continue to ignore that.
