MLB Players Weekend

This sounds like a cool idea and I think that Major League Baseball is doing a wonderful thing here with this. Over the weekend of August 25-27 the players get to wear special uniforms with nicknames on the back instead of their names. The names were chosen by the players. If this would continue it would be nice to see like fan got a chance to give some input as to what the nicknames were going to be on their teams uniforms. Yet this is only a little bit of the fun since on the 20th the previous Sunday the biggest game of the week will take place in Williamsport, PA home of the Little League World Series. The game will be between the Pirates and Cardinals and hopefully most of the crowd will be the kids participating in this year World Series as it is great that the players now can inspire the players of the future to continue to play and get better because who know how long it might be before they are called up to the Big league. The other aspect of this Players weekend is that they all will be wearing a patch of who has inspired/help them get to where they are today.
