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.

Judge visited Bungie’s HQ last month.

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.
