One of my favorite new traditions in MLB is the Players’ Weekend. While there’s been a lot of hand-wringing in the past over trivial things like the color of cleats, and the choice of sweatbands worn in-game, the Players’ Weekend gives players a chance to flaunt some of the personality that makes baseball so fun to watch.
It also makes me wonder, if life had panned out differently, and I had somehow defied the odds, and made the Major Leagues, what would my Players’ Weekend nickname be? How flamboyant would I be on this weekend, dedicated to the players?
So why not ask all of you the same thing? This weekend, our question for you is:
What would your Players’ Weekend nickname be, and why? What’s the story behind it? Do you have a favorite nickname around the league that you want to talk about, as well? What do you like about Players’ Weekend?
You can answer as many or as few of these questions as you like, the important thing this week is to reflect on what Players’ Weekend and its existence means to you? Once Players’ Weekend itself comes up, we’ll have a different prompt ready to go!
Have a nice weekend!
