The Houston Astros became one of the most hated franchises on the planet after they cheated their way to World Series victory. Many people felt that MLB didn’t punish them enough and should have stripped them of their prize. There’s no denying that there’s an asterisk beside their wins after the sign-stealing scandal.
However, MLB inadvertently trolled Houston with their hat design for the All-Star game. They added a star beside the team’s badge and made the asterisk real. Rival fans thought that this was hilarious because it reflected what everybody was thinking (via Fansided).
