With a revamped (for the better) Home-Run Derby and another successful Major League Baseball All-Star Game in the rear-view mirror, the second half of the baseball season is underway. While the MLB’s uniform regulations go a long way toward limiting what players wear on the field during the regular season, the All-Star Game and its surrounding events allow for much greater footwear freedom. In recent years, the major brands like Nike and Under Armour have taken that opportunity to outfit the best players in the game with some awesome and often eye-popping gear. In this first edition of The Diamond Mine, we’re digging up some of the most memorable footwear moments in All-Star history. Check back soon for more from The Diamond Mine and let us know which players you’d like to see featured in future posts!
