MLB star Aaron Judge is taking “Player’s Weekend” to a geeky level.
Pro baseball players are sporting unique uniforms and equipment this weekend as part of a special celebration that allows for some creative aesthetic freedom.
Judge, the 6-foot-7 Yankees outfielder who won the Home Run Derby last month, will wear cleats and batting gloves promoting Destiny 2, the new blockbuster game developed by Bellevue, Wash.-based Bungie.

Destiny 2, published by Activision, hits store shelves Sept. 6. It’s the sequel to Destiny, Bungie’s blockbuster game released in 2014 that reached more than $500 million in first day sales. Bungie, which created Halo, spun off from Microsoft in 2007, seven years after Microsoft acquired the gaming studio.
