Jersey nicknames to return for MLB Players’ Weekend

MLB unveiled the nicknames that will appear on the back of jerseys during Players’ Weekend later this month, including the first all-emoji name.

The nicknames will appear on jerseys during all games played Aug. 24-26, with Arizona Diamondbacks reliever Brad Boxberger landing the emoji honor.

The right-hander’s jersey will feature two emojis: a cardboard box and a hamburger. Get it? Box Burger = Boxberger.

Some other notable examples include Atlanta Braves outfielder Ender Inciarte’s “GAME ENDER,” Chicago Cubs reliever Carl Edwards Jr.’s “STRINGBEAN SLINGER,” Minnesota Twins second baseman Logan Forsythe’s “LOGIE BEAR,” San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence’s “UNDERPANTS,” Cleveland Indians pitcher Shane Bieber’s “NOT JUSTIN” and Boston Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale’s “THE CONDUCTOR.”

The nicknames aren’t the only thing that will be changed up during Players’ Weekend, with teams also sporting colorful uniforms and hats with alternative designs inspired by youth-league jerseys.

The jerseys will ultimately be auctioned off at with all proceeds going toward the MLB-MLBPA Youth Development Foundation.
