The third annual Players’ Weekend returns Aug. 23-25. Players are allowed to display nicknames on the back of their jerseys instead of their last names and, according to Major League Baseball, “are given the chance to design, wear and use creatively colored and decorated equipment including bats, spikes, batting gloves, wristbands, compression sleeves and catcher’s equipment.”
The Reds revealed their players’ choices Tuesday. Votto will pay homage to the famous Abbott & Costello routine with his choice. Who will be on first, even if his real name is Votto.
