Major League Baseball uniforms may be just a tad different on the week of August 25-27 across the nation.

The league formally unveiled all the uniforms for the upcoming Players’ Weekend that will allow all the MLB players to wear nicknames on the back of their jerseys for three games, along with different associated gear that is different than what they traditionally wear.  The Sox series versus the Baltimore Orioles will feature a navy blue uniform with red sleeves and white trim.    According the MLB, the uniforms will also feature a customizable patch where players can honor people that have helped them in their careers.

“Major League players have been supported by family members, coaches and organizations that helped them develop their unique skills and overcome challenges to reach the highest level of the sport. These games will allow the players to thank those who were important in their lives while showcasing their personality in a fun way that fits baseball’s community-driven focus,” said MLB Co missioner Rob Manfred in the release on Wednesday.

Some of the nicknames that will adorn the back of the Sox players include Laser Show (Dustin Pedroia), Astros’ Dad (David Price), Stick Man (Chris Sale), Lawnmower (Robbie Ross), and Brock Star (Brock Holt) among some of the selections.  The Sox have made jerseys with the nicknames available online for purchase here.

The weekend will also mark the first time the Yankees will wear names on the back of their home uniforms in the history of the franchise.
