ANAHEIM, Calif. - Dallas Keuchel thought he had submitted his request for his players' weekend uniform in time. The back of http://www.soebiesplace.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=57&t=12203 the jersey hanging in his locker stall in the visitors' clubhouse at Angel Stadium on Friday indicated otherwise. Instead of his nickname, "Kid Keuchy," Keuchel was one of the few Astros whose last name was lettered across the back of his jersey for Friday night's series opener against the Los Angeles Angels. The rest featured nicknames as part of baseball's inaugural players weekend, three days geared toward letting major leaguers display their http://mtkzone.info/event/409 personalities via monikers, colorful bats, batting gloves and cleats. "I think it's really cool," said Keuchel, who joked he would use a sharpie to pen his nickname on the back of his baby blue and bright orange alternate Astros jersey. "I don't know about the colors. I thought the Yankees and some of the teams are pretty close to spot on with colors. But I think it's a great way to kind of express yourself, where you grew up, be thankful for some people who made it possible. All in all, I think it's a really cool idea, and hopefully it can just get better and better each year." Naturally, certain Astros had more fun with it than http://www.dzh-esports.de/index/board/thread/where/3902 others. Josh Reddick, who went with the nickname of "Red Dawg" on his uniform, swung an American flag-themed bat with a red handle and a blue barrel and stars in between. Carlos Beltran was sent three red, white and blue Rawlings bats that featured the Puerto Rican flag and his hometown's 787 area code. Joe Musgrove and Chris Devenski sported custom-designed cleats commemorating where they grew up. Musgrove's featured a depiction of a San Diego sunset, a logo of his travel team as a kid, the San Diego stars, and his high school nickname, which was also featured on the back his uniform
