Here Are All The Nicknames On Jerseys For Players Weekend

Here Are All The Nicknames On Jerseys For Players Weekend

But baseball is giving it the old marketing try to obscure the obvious.

The New York Yankees have famously stuck with various traditions throughout their long history, including this one: They are the only team among the major North American pro sports leagues whose players have never worn their names on their jerseys.

Let's check some of those Twins jerseys.

For some reason that I can not understand, Major League Baseball continues to look for things to change despite little being wrong with the game.

Some the nicknames you'll see on the backs of Rockies players include "Chuck Nazty" for outfielder Charlie Blackmon, "Nado" for third baseman Nolan Arenado and "Free" for pitcher Kyle Freeland.

The White Sox will sport these jerseys when they host the Tigers at Guaranteed Rate Field August 25-27th. "Major League players have been supported by family members, coaches and organizations that helped them develop their unique skills and overcome challenges to reach the highest level of the sport". Much like the "MyCauseMyCleats" initiative put forward by the NFL, the "Players Weekend" will give the ballplayers a chance to express themselves... as long as it's the way the league wants them to.

MLB will auction off the jerseys on its website, with the proceeds going to the MLB-MLBPA Youth Development Foundation. Grab a new jersey or shirt with your favorite player's nicknamed adorned across the back, or an alternate style hat. "For MLB to have an event like Players Weekend dedicated to that is pretty cool". The event coincides with the final weekend of the Little League World Series in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
