Nationals

Major League Baseball has taken on Bryce Harper's motto and are attempting to 'make baseball fun again.' 

In the final week of August, also known as Players Weekend, all players across the majors will be allowed to wear special nickname jerseys. In addition, every team's jerseys have been altered slightly with a more colorful pallet that are inspired by youth-league uniforms.

Yes if you have not put two-and-two together yet, that is also the final weekend of the Little League World Series.

Making it more fun, the players were allowed to pick their own nicknames for the Players Weekend on August 25-27.

For the Washington Nationals, these jerseys are pretty straight forward unlike others across the league and gives some insight into each players personality. Some players have seem to have no creativity, but at least its better than what the Orioles put out. What would have been better option, their teammates chose each player's nicknames.
