The 2019 Players’ Weekend uniforms are a monochromatic nightmare

New, 23 comments

The nicknames are a bit paint-by-numbers, too.

This is now the third season for Players’ Weekend, an opportunity for players to show off their unique personality and nicknames, dazzle with exciting cleats or armbands, to really make things fun and interesting.

So, naturally, this year the uniforms are a bland black and white disaster which show precisely nothing in the way of personality whatsoever.

As the Tigers will be on the road August 23-25 you can look forward to them sporting the black uniforms.

And here’s a look at the all-black cap.

Additionally, instead of their usual batting helmets, teams will wear either matte black or matte white helmets to match their uniforms, with no team logo on the front.

Of course, you’re all wondering what names players will be wearing on those uniforms, and we’ve got you covered on that as well.

Tyler Alexander: “TODD THE PAINTER”
Gordon Beckham: “GORDO”
Matthew Boyd: “MATTY B”
Miguel Cabrera: “MIGGY”
Jeimer Candelario: “CANDY”
Harold Castro: “CASTY”
Jose Cisnero: “GUI”
Brandon Dixon: “BANDIT”
Buck Farmer: “GEORGE”
Michael Fulmer: “THE PLUMBER”
Niko Goodrum: “STINCHCOMB”
Blaine Hardy: “HARDY BOY”
Josh Harrison: “J HAY”
John Hicks: “JAZZ”
Eduardo Jimenez: “JIMMY”
Joe Jimenez: “JO JO”
JaCoby Jones: “J.J.”
Jordy Mercer: “THE ROOK”
Matt Moore: “MATTY MOE”
Daniel Norris: “D. NO”
Nick Ramirez: “RAMMER”
Victor Reyes: “VIC”
Jake Rogers: “ROG”
Trevor Rosenthal: “ROSEY”
Tyson Ross: “FREEWAY”
Gregory Soto: “CAPIRO”
Spencer Turnbull: “ORANGE BULL”
Drew VerHagen: “DUTCH”
Jordan Zimmermann: “J Z”

Spencer Turnbull, WHAT ARE YOU DOING? Orange Bull? No. Come on. “RED BULL.” The rest of these are pretty standard, though I have a lot of questions about Tyson Ross going with “FREEWAY” and Niko Goodrum’s “STINCHCOMB” which is just... what?” “TODD THE PAINTER” is also pretty solid.
