Check out MLB games in a couple of weekends for more colorful uniforms — and more colorful names on the back.
Major League Baseball is throwing a change-up during the weekend of August 25th through 27th with what they’re calling Players Weekend. Along with the brightly-colored jerseys and hats, we’ll also see modifications to team logos and in some cases new logos altogether.
The most fun part may be seeing feature players’ nicknames on the back instead of their last names.
Even the Yankees, who don’t traditionally have their names on the jerseys, will have them during Players Weekend.
One nickname of note — Mariners star Kyle Seager will have “Corey’s Brother” on his back, referencing the Dodgers shortstop.
Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard will wear “Thor” on his jersey, something former Twins pitcher Paul Thormodsgard did nearly 40 years ago.
Our beloved Adrian Beltre will have “El Koja” due to his childhood nickname of Kojak.
Here’s all the Rangers nicknames and the change in colors. Cool, huh?
