Major League Baseball released Tuesday the caps each team will wear this Fourth of July, and they’re a bit different than the headwear worn in years past.

The 2014 versions will feature a similar stars and stripes theme but include a giant star on the crown, positioned behind the team logo and bearing an image of the American flag.
Here’s what they’ll look like for last year’s pennant winners — the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals:
