Only checked the last few pages, so apologies if this was already posted.

This exists. Still waiting for voting in 2015 to get going.

Is this only for current players? Surprised no one's mentioned the Rube.

Buck McNabb. Especially for a guy who steals a lot of bases.

I thought Angus coined it as I'd never heard it used before. Checked Baseball Reference and there it is, listed. Awesome.

Urban Shocker is the best name. Not just the best baseball name; the best name ever bestowed upon a human person at his or her birth. Actually, it was "Urbain"...

Minor league contracts (the minors were not under the control of the majors back then) kept him out of the bigs till he was 25. He was a great picher for a good 2-3 years before he made the show. He had a heart condition, and died at 37, he still had a few years left in him.

Red Faber's given name was also Urban. So there's one Hall of Fame pitcher, and another who SHOULD be in the Hall, named Urban.

Was never called that during his career. Mordecai Brown was known as "Miner" because, well, he'd worked in the coal mines. Some olde tyme names were creative, some less so.

And some were downright shitty. Jay Justin Clarke for instance, was of dark complexion....

Most of us know of the pitcher Dock Ellis, who threw the famous "LSD No-Hitter" back in 1970. I really, really hope he was listed in the scorebook that day as "Ellis, D."

Jarrod Saltalamacchia - catcher for the Tigers. TV announcers a week or 2 ago said he has the longest name in the MLB.

His name would translate to Jarrod JumpsTheMark in Italian.

Nice

Would you say you're fluent in the language yet? I've been taking Italian for a year, and I still pretty much suck. Merda.
