PHOTOS: 2014 All-Star Game hats an homage to 1970s Twins
The All-Star Game hats for this Midsummer Classic are an homage to the design of the 1970s Twins batting helmet. Here are a few pictures.
Major League Baseball has revealed its team-specific caps for the 2014 All-Star Game -- which will be played Tue., July 15, at Minnesota's Target Field. This year, each team will have a version that is an homage to the 1970s Twins batting helmets. Check out the Twins' design to help jog your memory, if needed:
"Returning to Minnesota for the first time in almost 30 years, we wanted to honor the Twins history with new ideas and their distinctive batting helmet design from the 1970s made perfect sense," said Tim Brosnan, MLB's executive VP of business, in a statement.
That's pretty cool. It makes perfect sense, but that Twins one might well be the best.

There is a version for each of the 30 teams that will be available for purchase at LIDS, New Era retail locations, NewEraCap.com and MLB.com's online shop beginning July 3. They will then hit sporting goods stores nationwide July 7.
