ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Major League Baseball is doing its Players Weekend promotion again later this month, where players get to wear a nickname on the back of their jersey, if they so choose. Unfortunately we won't be able to see the Cardinals wearing those jerseys in St. Louis, as the Cards will be in Colorado on August 24th through the 26th.

Last year, St. Louis played Pittsburgh for Players Weekend and played its games near Williamsport, Penn., close to the site of the Little League World Series. 

Here's all the nicknames the players will wear:

Harrison Bader: "TOTS"
Matt Carpenter: "CARP"
Brett Cecil: "SQUINTS"
Paul DeJong: "PAULY"
Jack Flaherty: "FLARE"
Dexter Fowler: "DEX"
John Gant: "GANT"
Adolis Garcia: "EL BOMBI"
Greg Garcia: "GG"
Austin Gomber: "BIG G"
Luke Gregerson: "DUKE"
Jedd Gyorko: "JERK-OH"
Jordan Hicks: "HICKS"
Dakota Hudson: "DAK"
Dominic Leone: "DOMINATOR"
Carlos Martinez: "TSUNAMI"
Jose Martinez: "CAFÉ"
Mike Mayers: "MAYERS"
Miles Mikolas: "MIK"
Yadier Molina: "YADI"
Yairo Munoz: "PALITO"

Here are highlights of other players around the majors:

Hunter Pence of the San Francisco Giants chose 'Underpants.'

Brad Boxberger of the Arizona Diamondbacks is wearing two EMOJIS on his jersey . . . a cardboard box emoji, followed by a hamburger emoji.  "Box burger," get it?

Rhys Hoskins of the Philadelphia Phillies is going with 'Big Fella' . . . so his teammate Tommy Hunter is trolling him by wearing the nickname 'Bigger Fella.'

Joey Gallo of the Texas Rangers chose 'Pico de Gallo.'

James Paxton of the Seattle Mariners is 'Big Maple' . . . as in a maple leaf, because he's from Canada.

Brad Hand of the Cleveland Indians chose 'Brotein Shake.'

Yasmani Grandal of the L.A.  Dodgers is going with the 'Yasmanian Devil.' 

Shane Bieber of the Indians is going with 'Not Justin.'

Ender Inciarte of the Atlanta Braves chose 'Game Ender.'
