    I don't think OBR adresses this specific point but it is addressed in MLB's CBA. The CBA mandates strict standards regarding uniform appearance not just on the field but in official post game interviews, etc. I believe the CBA standard is that jerseys can not be unbuttoned below the team's chest logo/name. So basically it's not a legal standard (OBR) but an administrative one (CBA). I'm not sure if umpires would enforce this in-game, but administratively the player could be fined by the league.
    Here is the section on jerseys from the CBA;

    C. Jerseys
    1. Jerseys, including sleeves, may not be so baggy or otherwise
    sized or worn in a manner which may, in the umpire’s judgment,
    interfere with the umpire’s ability to make calls or provide the
    Player with a competitive advantage.
    2. Sleeve length may not extend below the elbow.
    3. Sleeves may not be cut.
    4. Jerseys may not be unbuttoned below the bottom of the Club
    logo.

    5. Jerseys may not intentionally be untucked.
    6. Under no circumstances may a jersey be ordered at or altered
    to a length where it cannot properly be tucked in.
    D. Undershirts
    1. When any portion of a Player’s undershirt is visible, the Player
    may only wear an undershirt that is in the Club’s primary color
    or the heather gray color supplied by the Club.
    2. No corporate identification or other logos of any kind are to
    be visible on any part of the undershirt, except for any Club logo
    or Major League Baseball silhouetted batter logo.
    E. Outerwear
    Players may not cut or in any way alter the Club-supplied outerwear.

    There isn't a problem with two buttons being undone, but umpires could use rule 9.01c to prevent flagrant changes from proper wearing of the uniform. I doubt that they would allow a player to have his shirt totally unbuttoned, and untucked.

    The Mr. T starter kits could more of an issue than the buttons.

    Now I know that that's a stretch well past common sense, but my point is, that unless there's some memorandum from the league office, there's not a violation in the rule book that I could find (at least from the index) that would prevent him from leaving those buttons open.

    I too would be interested to hear what someone else more in the know about it would have to say.
