D-backs release list of nicknames for jerseys on Players Weekend

For Major League Baseball’s Players Weekend later this month, every MLB team will wear jerseys with nicknames on the back, instead of last names.

A statement from Major League Baseball and the MLB Players’ Association said Players Weekend is a “player-focused event” in which players will wear uniforms with non-traditional colors and have the opportunity to have a nickname on the back of their jersey.

In addition, players can wear uniquely-colored compression sleeves, gloves, cleats and more.

The weekend is Aug. 25 to 27.

And with that, here are the D-backs’ nicknames:
