These Are The Best Jersey Nicknames For MLB Players Weekend

MLB Players Weekend is returning this month, with an opportunity for players across the league to showcase their individuality for the second straight year. For Players Weekend, which will take place from August 24-26, players have the opportunity to pick unique nicknames for the back of their jerseys. The weekend will also feature special edition uniforms and accessories, including catcher’s masks and bats. Players Weekend came to be thanks to a deal between MLB and the MLB Players Association.

There are a number of hilarious plays on words and some movie-inspired nicknames, and there are even some players who decided to poke fun at networks like ESPN who had technical glitches screw up their name in the past. Then, we may just have the GOAT nickname which comes in the form of just two emojis.

What nickname will your favorite player be rocking across his back when Players Weekend officially arrives.
