Can the 'Mayor of Ding Dong City' fit onto the back of a baseball uniform? Brewers' third baseman Travis Shaw and the rest of the MLB now have a chance to find out.
Major League Baseball has allowed its players to wear nicknames on the back of their uniforms as a part of Players Weekend, which will take place from Aug. 25-27.
The players can also wear brightly colored cleats, as well as a patch bearing the name of an organization or person who impacted his development.
Unfortunately, Brewers fans will have to check out the funky kits on television. Milwaukee is finishing up a nine-game road trip against the Dodgers during Players Weekend.
The jerseys will be sold by MLB, and the proceeds will go to the Youth Development Foundation.
