Aug 9, 2017, 11:05 AM | Updated: 3:27 pm

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:
