    From mlb.com -

    Major League Baseball, the New York Yankees and the City of New York today unveiled the official logo of the 79th Major League Baseball All-Star Game, which will be played on Tuesday, July 15th, 2008, during the final season at Yankee Stadium. Today’s unveiling took place at an afternoon press conference at Yankee Stadium.

    Those in attendance prior to New York’s game against the Chicago White Sox to discuss 2008 All-Star Summer were the Mayor of New York, the Honorable Michael R. Bloomberg; MLB President & Chief Operating Officer Bob DuPuy; Yankee executives Hal Steinbrenner, Randy Levine and Lonn Trost; past Yankee All-Stars Yogi Berra and Ron Guidry; and veteran Yankee All-Stars Derek Jeter and Hideki Matsui.

    The official logo of the 2008 All-Star Game is traditional and simple in nature, symbolic of the Yankee franchise, and incorporates the club’s signature pinstripes and the architectural element of the famed Yankee Stadium façade. The colors of the 2008 Midsummer Classic will reflect the club’s navy and white.

    Pretty boring logo, no? Then again, it’s better than the one from 1977.

      I actually really like it. It’s classy.

      Just an FYI for anyone interested:

      Andy Phillips, Shelley Duncan and Doug Mientkiewicz (a.k.a. Rico Bergman) are going to be at a place called Last Licks on Saturday from 6 to 7:30 doing signings. It’s weird. It’s a small ice cream chain, but they do signings….

      I work right near one in Armonk (Westchester) and I heard Melky was there recently, so I looked them up. It’s always fun to go to signings, if you can!

      No, it’s not boring. It’s just not a by-product of the ESPN generation. I like it a lot better than some of the recent ones that are way to busy. The real test will be to see how it translates on a patch though.

      Much better than the 1954 one — that one’s too blatantly Cleveland.

      I would think that there wouldn’t be any problem; it looks like it would easily translate to a patch. If they could get those World Series logos on a patch, or even the busier ASG logos of recent vintage, this one should be a breeze

      The difference with those logos and this one is the subtly of the detail. The serifs on “ALL STAR GAME” and the thin pinstripes have the potential to get lost when translated into stitching on a patch. But all I’ve seen is the online example (which isn’t really a clean copy) and the giant one at the Stadium. Maybe the hi-res logo would stand up better.
