The seventh annual brothers baseball road trip is in the books. The weather (and Cubs) didn't cooperate, but San Francisco still made for a good time. The highlights of our trip were the Javy Baez inside-the-park home run on Monday night, our trip across the Golden Gate Bridge, and a tour through Twitter's headquarters. Now the debate begins, where do we go in 2018?
Earlier today, MLB and the MLBPA released details for the upcoming "Players Weekend." The weekend is a joint effort between the two and takes place in two weekends, August 25-27. There are a ton of fun things planned—read about those here—but the most obvious change will be the on-field jerseys.
The style of the jerseys harkens back to the 70s and 80s, which is cool by itself. But, the coolest part is the personalized names players chose to put on the back. Even though the games are a couple weeks away, you can buy the jerseys now. Do yourself a favor and glance through them here. Below are my favorites. Well done, MLB.
For reference, those jerseys (in order) are Kyle Seager, Aaron Judge, Francisco Lindor, A.J. Ellis, Yoan Moncada, and Mike Trout. I don't really get what Trout is doing, but I assume it's awesome because he is awesome.
