On Monday night against the Mets at Yankee Stadium, Aaron Judge, Aaron Hicks and Gary Sanchez all recorded their 40th career home runs in the same game.
For the first time in their storied history, the Yankees will feature more than a number on the back of their uniforms. Players will have the opportunity to select a nickname that will appear on their game jerseys during the inaugural Players Weekend, to be held Aug. 25-27.

Two of New York's young starting pitchers, with aspirations to pitch well in the Big Apple for the foreseeable future, will duel Thursday night on the Citi Field mound as the American League Wild Card-leading Yankees look to sweep the 2017 Subway Series from the Mets. Both Luis Severino and Steven Matz have captured their respective fan bases' adulation at different points in their young careers, but only one of them -- Severino -- is currently pitching up to expectations.
The Yankees offered two votes of confidence for Aroldis Chapman on Wednesday afternoon, with manager Joe Girardi stating that "he will continue to be my closer" and that he believes the left-hander will be able to avoid a stint on the disabled list.

To Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner, the criteria are pretty clear cut. In a 2017 season in which expectations rose considerably after a strong start -- and especially after an active Trade Deadline period -- there is more emphasis on what was, going into Wednesday, a 6-8 record in August than there would have been otherwise.
WWE stars award Judge with championship belt
Sonny Gray hurled six-plus solid innings to pick up his first win in pinstripes and Aroldis Chapman survived a bumpy ninth inning as the Yankees defeated the Mets, 5-4, on Tuesday evening, concluding the Yankee Stadium portion of the Subway Series.
Aroldis Chapman crouched at the front of the mound while Amed Rosario circled the bases around him, remaining motionless until catcher Gary Sanchez finally patted the struggling closer on the back with his glove.
Are Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez partially to thank for Gary Sanchez's offensive surge? The catcher homered for the fourth time in seven games on Tuesday, helping the Yankees to a 5-4 win over the Mets, and said that a recent power lunch in midtown Manhattan with the superstar couple helped to clear his mind.
It was only a couple weeks ago that the Yankees traded for Sonny Gray, adding what they believed to be a front-line starter to their rotation.
The hits just keep coming for Jahmai Jones. The Angels' No. 2 prospect extended his hitting streak to 18 games on Tuesday with a leadoff double in Class A Advanced Inland Empire's 2-0 win over Lake Elsinore. He also hit a single and walked once in the contest, finishing 2-for-4 at the plate.
Aaron Judge has been spending many of his afternoons in the batting cage and in the video room, searching for solutions to the mechanical flaws that are believed to be responsible for a midseason swoon. He may be about to solve this puzzle in front of the entire city.
Aaron Judge, Aaron Hicks and Gary Sanchez all connected for the 40th home runs of their Major League careers on Monday evening, powering the Yankees to a much-needed 4-2 victory over the Mets in the opening game of this year's Subway Series.
Yankees third baseman Todd Frazier lights up whenever he talks about the Little League World Series, which his team from Toms River, N.J., won in 1998.
Mark McGwire arrived in Oakland in 1987, a bright-eyed rookie with a powerful swing. Before he had time to fully comprehend his status as a big leaguer, he says, he was already threatening Major League Baseball's 31-year-old rookie homer record -- held at the time by Frank Robinson and Wally Berger.

This will be Dellin Betances' 21st Subway Series -- fourth as a player, the rest as a New Yorker. This would have been T.J. Rivera's first as a player, but his number in that second category is the same as that of Betances, as it is for any baseball fan their age who grew up in New York City.
The third pitch of Aroldis Chapman's ninth-inning showdown with Rafael Devers zipped toward home plate at 102.1 mph, and the Red Sox rookie barely made contact, tipping it foul. The next fastball came in just a little bit hotter, and it never made it to catcher Gary Sanchez's glove.
The Red Sox enjoyed a glimpse of their bright future on Sunday evening as Rafael Devers cracked a dramatic, game-tying home run and Andrew Benintendi delivered the go-ahead hit, lifting Boston to a thrilling 3-2 victory in 10 innings over the Yankees that swelled their American League East lead to a season-high 5 1/2 games.
One year ago Sunday, Aaron Judge had an exciting Major League debut, going 2-for-4 with a home run. It was followed by a lackluster late-season stint that left him fighting for a starting job in Spring Training. Now Judge is arguably the most recognizable player in MLB. What a difference a year makes.
Andrew Benintendi's sweet stroke produced a pair of three-run homers as the Red Sox pounded Luis Severino and the Yankees, 10-5, on Saturday afternoon to claim their ninth victory in 10 games.
Only a pitch limit could deliver a knock against Taylor Widener on Sunday, as the Yankees prospect delivered five no-hit innings for Class A Advanced Tampa before getting pulled after 60 pitches.
Luis Severino's transformation into the Yankees' ace has taken place largely without interruption over the course of this All-Star campaign, and with the Red Sox in town, the right-hander picked an especially inopportune time to experience his worst outing of the season.
Right-hander Masahiro Tanaka was placed on the 10-day disabled list on Saturday with right shoulder inflammation, retroactive to Thursday.
Judge's mini-fan makes nice catch in stands
In what could have been viewed as his club's most important game of the season, Aaron Hicks homered to spark a five-run rally and uncorked a terrific throw to help the Yankees stun the Red Sox and snap their eight-game winning streak with a 5-4 victory on Friday evening at Yankee Stadium.
The Yankees had almost forgotten how impressive Aaron Hicks' right arm was to watch, so much so that a group of pitchers marveled over his velocity while shagging batting practice fly balls as they opened their rivalry homestand vs. the Red Sox, wondering aloud what radar gun readings he might produce from the mound.
Marco Estrada befuddled the Yankees over seven scoreless innings to pick up his first win since May 27, and Jose Bautista crushed his third homer in four games as the Blue Jays secured the rubber game of the three-game series with a 4-0 victory at Rogers Centre on Thursday night.
The Yankees are contending in what was supposed to a retooling year, and the system already has begun to deliver impact talent.
