Charlie Blackmon's Stars-and-Stripes shirt wins the All-Star red carpet

First things first, yes, there is a red carpet portion of the MLB All-Star game. It's part of the annual All-Star parade, where stars get in cars and wave to fans in the host city.

Many players seemed to suit up and get dapper. See Giancarlo Stanton, Robinson Cano and Derek Jeter, for example.

But Colorado Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon — one of the first-time All-Stars whose name isn't as widely recognized — made sure people remembered at least his outfit, if not his name. Blackmon broke out a Stars-and-Stripes button-up shirt and was certainly having fun:

Blackmon is a 28-year-old seeing the first consistent playing time of his career with the Rockies in 2014. He's responded wonderfully, with a .306/.350/.480 hitting line, 14 homers and 52 RBIs. 

He's unleashed his hidden All-Star in 2014, and now the man known as Chuck Nazty on Twitter has shown us his inner entertainer too.
