It’s uniform change for MLB’s Players Weekend

3:00 PM ET

The New York Yankees have famously stuck with various traditions throughout their long history, including this one: They are the only team among the major North American pro sports leagues whose players have never worn their names on their jerseys.

But that is about to change.

MLB announced Wednesday the details of Players Weekend, which will take place on Aug. 25 through 27. The promotion will include new uniforms, with most players — including those on the Yankees — wearing nicknames instead of their last names.

The Players Weekend program has several unusual uniform-related components. Here’s a detailed look, going one element at a time:

1. New jerseys and caps. All 30 MLB teams will wear bright-colored jerseys with contrasting sleeves. The jerseys will be pullovers, not button-fronts. There will also be a new set of bright-colored caps, many of which feature either slight modifications to the teams’ familiar cap logos or, in some cases, new logos that have never appeared on a cap before.
