MLB Players to Wear Their Nicknames on Their Jerseys

For the first time ever, Major League Baseball players will have their nicknames on the back of their jerseys during the Inaugural Players Weekend on August 25-27. 

Players across all 30 teams will wear very colorful uniforms with never before seen designs and feature a nickname of their choosing.

Some of the nicknames chosen are:

"All Rise," as chosen by Yankees slugger Aaron Judge. 

"Cutch" for Pittsburgh Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutcheon.

And our winner, "Corey's Brother," as chosen by Seattle Mariners third baseman, Kyle Seager, the older brother of reigning NL Rookie of the Year Corey Seager.

Seager didn't choose a name for his jersey, though he is referred to as "Seags" a lot by his teammates.

Other Dodger nicknames include "Cody Love," for Cody Bellinger, "RedTurn2" for Justin Turner, and "Silver Fox," for second baseman Chase Utley.

Besides the nicknames, the players will also wear a special patch on their shoulder showing a child evolving into a Major League player. 

Underneath that new logo, each player can write the name of a person who either changed their life, or helped advance his career.

After the inaugural weekend, all of the game-worn jerseys and equipment will be auctioned off for charity HERE with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the MLB-MLBPA Youth Development Foundation.
