Stay plugged into this page for updates on the unique gear Cubs players will rock over MLB's third annual Players' Weekend.
The Cubs sure will stand out on the field more than usual this weekend.
Friday commences Day 1 of MLB's third annual Players' Weekend. Over the next three days, players league-wide will rock personalized gear -- bats, gloves, cleats, etc. -- that demonstrate their style, interests and more. This is in addition to the all-white uniforms that the team will wear over the weekend.
While Derek Holland's cleats themed after "The Office" may go down as the best, other Cubs players deserve recognition for their swag, too. Without further ado, let's check out what the other players will don this weekend:
Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant is using Players' Weekend to support a great cause. Bryant will sport cleats that raise awareness for Wings for Life, a spinal cord research foundation and charity that he's supported since the beginning of big league career. The cause is important to Bryant, as his close friend, Cory Hahn, was paralyzed sliding into second base as a freshman at Arizona State University in 2011.
Bryant partnered with three Chicago street artists, each of whom customized a pair of cleats and a bat. The designs tell different stories inspired by some of Bryant's childhood memories: hitting in a batting cage with his dad, playing wiffle ball in his hometown and his love of superheroes.
Fans can bid on the gear here, as it will be auctioned off at the Wings for Life Golf Classic on Sept. 23.
Anthony Rizzo paid homage to Chicago with his cleats and bat. The first baseman's cleats feature a shot of the Chicago skyline from Lake Michigan's perspective, while his bat includes the iconic four red starts from the city's flag.
Ian Happ also gave Chicago a shout-out with one pair of his cleats, while a second pair demonstrates his interest in golf. Both also include the initial's of his dad, who passed away from brain cancer in 2015.
