For Players Weekend, from August 2527, MLB players will wear jerseys donning their nicknames instead of their traditional uniforms. This is the league's latest attempt to connect with the fans and make some money for charity. However, some of the nickname jerseys are interfering with the look of traditional jerseys and frankly smells like a desperate cash grab. What do you think?

MLB has been a league of stiffs holding on to tradition, while the world continues to evolve. It's time for the league to embrace change—if only for three games. These player nickname jerseys are a really simple way of showing a human side of the athletes who take the field. The game dictates its players show as little emotion as possible, but these jerseys show most of them have a funny side to them too.

While some of the players might not like it, the jerseys will be auctioned off to help charitable causes. People need to embrace these jerseys. The jerseys provide a much-needed injection of fun in a long season.

People think baseball NEEDS to change, but one of the charms of professional baseball is it's essentially the same game that's been played for over a hundred years. These nickname jerseys have already tainted the New York Yankees traditional jersey, which has been untouched since 1914. Home Yankee jerseys won't have pinstripes, and they will have names on the back—both huge insults to the organization.

This move just screams of a desperate attempt to generate money for MLB. This isn't about connecting the fans to the players they love. This is all about jersey sales, and maximizing revenue. The game makes money, but it should be not exploited. These jerseys are what is wrong with baseball.
