MLB teams will be wearing those godawful stars and stripes caps this weekend. Nothing new there -- that's become a Fourth of July MLB tradition.

But some additional stars will be in the mix after the American League and National League All-Star rosters are announced on Sunday. For the first time, all players named for the two squads will wear little gold stars on their uniforms (see photo above) for the week leading up to the game. The two stars will bookend the MLB logo on the players' jerseys (look for players to start wearing them on July 4) and caps (July 5).

In an era of large uniform gestures, the stars seem classy and understated -- nice.
