The 1938 American Association All-Star Game, played in Toledo on the night of July 14, featured up-and-coming stars such as Ted Williams and Eddie Joost. But another attraction of the game was the uniforms worn by the All-Star squad. The AA All-Stars wore red, white and blue uniforms made of a shiny satin weave, designed to dazzle the eye under the brilliance of electric lights. A number of major league teams, most notably the Brooklyn Dodgers and Boston Braves, experimented with satin uniforms for night games in the 1940s, but the style never caught on.
