Players tell their stories during Players' Weekend
Players' Weekend was a big hit for players and fans.
From Aug. 24-26, players' personalities were put into the spotlight. Players on all 30 clubs wore specially designed, youth-league style uniforms with a nickname they selected on the jersey. Players also were allowed to use special equipment, including bats,spikes, batting gloves, wristbands, compression sleeves and catcher's equipment, designed to their personal liking.
Throughout the weekend, players took to their social media to promote their fresh apparel, as well as dedicate the week to causes of their choosing. Game-worn jerseys will be auctioned off and all proceeds will go towards the MLB-MLBPA Youth Development Foundation.
