The D-backs all wore their best Ketel Marte outfits to celebrate his All-Star Game push
D-backs infielder Ketel Marte is on track for a breakout year, having carried a .314/.363/.584 line and career-best 20 homers into Wednesday's win over the Dodgers.
His play has been impressive, so much so that he's in the running for a starting nod in the All-Star Game -- click here to cast your ballot if you haven't yet, as you only have until 4 p.m. ET on Thursday to do so. Marte's been so inspiring in the Arizona clubhouse that his teammates all dressed up as him for their road trip.
And they're stylin'.
Manager Torey Lovullo summed it up: “Today is [dress in] our best Ketel Marte outfit," he told MLB.com's Steve Gilbert. “So we’re doing that in support of him. You’re going to see some outfits today that are going to be pretty extravagant, but it spells Ketel and that’s what it’s all about. It’s his day today.”

And shout-out to Carson Kelly for capturing some more images of the show:
If there's a more slick way to come together as a team and rally around a teammate in the midst of an amazing season, I'd like to see it.
