Twins Nicknames And Uniforms Revealed For 2019 Players Weekend

Players weekend is my favorite weekend of the year for the MLB. It's where the players get to show off their personality and great nicknames. Players weekend this year is Aug. 23-25. The Players Weekend uniforms will be black or white canvases upon which players will paint their personalities for the weekend-long event planned jointly by Major League Baseball and the MLB Players’ Association. Each home team will decide which color -- black or white -- it will wear for the weekend. This year the Twins will be at home against the Tigers and from what I've seen in the Twins shop they will wear white jerseys with white hats (below).

Now comes my favorite part of the weekend, the nicknames! I'm a little upset that Astudillo didn't pick La Tortuga as his nickname. Here are the nicknames for the Twins, according to MLB.com:
