BASEBALL: Uniform Change-Up for Players Weekend

Major League Baseball is throwing a change-up during the weekend of August 25th through 27th with what they're calling Players Weekend. During the period, teams will wear special brightly colored jerseys with contrasting sleeves and bright colored hats, featuring modifications to teams' usual logos and in some cases, new logos altogether.

That's not all. Those special jerseys will feature players' nicknames on the back instead of their last names. Even the Yankees, who don't traditionally have their names on the jerseys, will have them during Players Weekend.

The jerseys will also feature a new MLB logo, which combines the Little League and MLB logos, in an attempt to show the evolution from youth to adulthood. (
