Arizona Diamondbacks closer Brad Boxberger wins the prize for the best jersey nickname that will be used during Major League Baseball Players Weekend from Aug. 24-26. 

Rather than go with a traditional name on the back of his Diamondbacks uniform, Boxberger decided to go with emojis:

Pete Blackburn @PeteBlackburn

Here is a short list of other nicknames that will be used by players to showcase their personalities on the field:

Here's just a taste of some of the nicknames you'll see #PlayersWeekend. https://t.co/KqvkYCmH5L

None of those names can compete with Boxberger finding a way to get his actual name on the back of a jersey without having to use letters. 

All player nicknames should be retired thanks to Boxberger's emoji-inspired piece of art.
