From Aug. 25-27, Major League Baseball will have its first ever Players Weekend.

Players who choose to participate will sport a nickname on the back of their jersey for the duration of the three days. Each player will also get a custom patch on their jersey to honor someone instrumental to them.

This follows a similar trend to that of the NBA, which rocked nicknames last season.

Here is a list of the nicknames some Boston Red Sox are expected to go with:

  • No. 2 Xander Bogaerts — X
  • No. 3 Sandy Leon — NOAH
  • No. 12 Brock Holt — BROCK STAR
  • No. 13 Hanley Ramirez — EL TRECE
  • No. 15 Dustin Pedroia — LASER SHOW
  • No. 16 Andrew Benintendi — BENNY
  • No. 18 Mitch Moreland — 2 BAGS
  • No. 19 Jackie Bradley Jr. — JBJ
  • No. 22 Rick Porcello — VEINTDOS
  • No. 24 David Price — ASTRO’S DAD
  • No. 28 Robbie Ross Jr. — LAWNMOWER
  • No. 30 Chris Young — CY
  • No. 31 Drew Pomeranz — BIG SMOOTH
  • No. 37 Heath Hembree — HEATER
  • No. 38 Doug Fister — FIST
  • No. 41 Chris Sale — STICKMAN
  • No. 46 Craig Kimbrel — DIRTY CRAIG
  • No. 47 Tyler Thornburg — THORNY
  • No. 50 Mookie Betts — MOOKIE
  • No. 51 Blaine Boyer — GRANDE ROJO
  • No. 52 Eduardo Rodriguez — EL GUALO
  • No. 56 Joe Kelly — JK
  • No. 68 Matt Barnes — BARNICLES

The logic behind this event seems to try to reign in a younger demographic to a game that’s average viewer is 57 years old.

The Red Sox will be hosting the Baltimore Orioles for all three games.
