For the first time, Major League Baseball is holding "Players Weekend" where players will wear special jerseys with the opportunity to put any name they want on the back of their jersey. The jerseys, which you can see below, are available for purchase with the nicknames.
Kyle Seager of the Mariners chose his nickname as "Corey's Brother" in reference to his brother Corey Seager who is a superstar for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Naturally, the choice went viral around the internet. See all the jerseys below!
These were all player chosen. So some just preferred to go without.— Mariners (@Mariners) August 9, 2017
After making headlines on social media for his nickname choice, Kyle made headlines on the field with a home run in his first at-bat today!
Kyle's brother Corey did not share the same humor with his nickname (or not) choice for Players Weekend.
