Dodgers unveil Players Weekend uniforms

New, 81 comments

Major League Baseball on Wednesday announced the Players’ Weekend event, in which they’ll allow players to don their nicknames on the backs of their jerseys. The event will take place starting on August 25th and conclude on August 27th.

The jerseys the teams will be wearing won’t be the traditional looks as each team has their own unique apparel.

Also, on the player’s sleeve, there will be a blank square sewn in for the player to fill with the name of a teammate, coach, or someone special in their life that was important to his development.

The weekend is a chance for players to let a little bit of their personalities come to the surface and have fun in a different way.

Among the Dodgers’ nicknames, Corey Seager is the one that will simply have his last name across the back. I guess the team leader in WAR gets a pass.

Corey’s older brother, Kyle, gets the best nickname with this beauty.

Here is a list of all the Dodger nicknames:

Dodgers Nicknames

Last Name First Name Nickname
Last Name First Name Nickname
AVILAN LUIS AVI
BAEZ PEDRO LA MULA
BARNES AUSTIN SAM
BELLINGER CODY CODYLOVE
CINGRANI TONY GRANI

KERSHAW CLAYTON KERSH
MAEDA KENTA MAEKEN
MCCARTHY BRANDON BMAC
MORROW BRANDON B MO
PEDERSON JOC DIZZY
PUIG YASIEL WILD HORSE
ROBERTS DAVE DOC
RYU HYUN-JIN MONSTER
SEAGER COREY SEAGER
STRIPLING ROSS CHICKEN STRIP
TAYLOR CHRIS CT3
TURNER JUSTIN REDTURN2
UTLEY CHASE SILVER FOX
WATSON TONY WATTY
WOOD ALEX WOODMAN

Easily the best jerseys will be Hyun-jin Ryu with “Monster” and Ross Stripling with “Chicken Strip.” Chase Utley going with “Silver Fox” is only surprising because he is the type to be the boring one instead of Seager.

Rich Hill (Brice) and Austin Barnes (Sam) are the most obscure of the bunch.

It should be a fun weekend seeing some of the characters around the game.
