Should All The Major Sports Leagues Follow This New Idea?
Major League Baseball season is already in full effect, the All Star Game is already next month. Now the summer months can get boring and starting this year they want to bring life to the MLB.
“Players Weekend” is reportedly a relaxing weekend for the MLB. Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports said this takes place on August 25-27th of this year.

MLB players will have the option to wear jerseys with nicknames, including off-team colored cleats, batting gloves, wristbands, sleeves, and masks. TEach jersey will have a patch where a player can display a name of an individual or organization that was instrumental to their success.
Of course “inappropriate or offensive” stuff is not allowed, but this something I can get into. Like that old XFL, just seeing the creativity that each athlete brings to the table.
Should the rest of the Major Sports Leagues have a weekend like this or something different? Let us know below in the comments!
