It's back! For the weekend of Aug. 24-26 players will get a chance to have some fun again. Like they did for the first time in 2017, teams will wear alternate jerseys inspired by youth league designs, and individual players can also replace last names with nicknames on jersey nameplates. They will also be permitted to wear custom-designed flashy equipment, from batting gloves to bats, that shows their personalities.
