Major League Baseball to celebrate Players Weekend

Boston Red Sox to wear customized gear, feature nicknames on jerseys as part of MLB's Players Weekend

From Aug. 25-27, players will wear alternate jerseys inspired by youth-league uniforms.

As part of the weekend, players will wear different uniforms with alternative designs and have their nickname featured on the back.

Alongside the MLB Players Association, the MLB announced Wednesday (Aug. 9) that during the upcoming weekend, players will be able to express themselves via nicknames from their past in youth baseball.

On the other end of the spectrum, Mike Zunino and Ben Gamel decided they're last names are perfectly suitable for the new jerseys. We'll see the likes of "The Machine" for Albert Pujols to "KIIIIID" for Mike Trout ("SLIM" for Cameron Maybin is our personal favorite).

Players can also wear personalized equipment and the right sleeve of each jersey will have a logo to symbolize development.

Here's a look at some of the nicknames players will be sporting around the league. The Yankees host the Mariners on Players Weekend.

Below are all of the Rangers' Player Weekend jerseys.

Jose Altuve will wear "Tuve" on the back of his jersey.

The White Sox, who will be home against the Tigers for the promotion, will feature a black-and-red color scheme, with a black pullover jersey with red sleeves and white piping.

Players Weekend gear is available for purchase at this link.

MLB will auction off the jerseys on its website, with the proceeds going to the MLB-MLBPA Youth Development Foundation.

The players will support the event by posting to social media using #PlayersWeekend.

The Boston Red Sox and the rest of Major League Baseball are set for quite the uniform overhaul later this month. They went to the Dixie World Series back then, and said those were "some of the best times I ever had".
