Baseball Nicknames You Want to Avoid

Posted on

Baseball’s Fall Classic is upon us, which means we have to savor each clutch hit, double play and close call at the plate that remains in the season. While we’re at it, let’s also be happy that none of our favorite players is saddled with one of these nicknames:

CAPTAIN KLUTZ

STAN THE YAM

MR. OCTOBERFEST

THE BIG HURL

FAT REGIS

STAMMERIN’ STEVE

TOOTHLESS JOE

THE SULTAN OF SWISH

MILD THING

TOM HORRIFIC

THE SPLENDID SPHINCTER

THE BIG EUNUCH

THE SAD HUNGARIAN

CHARLIE HUSTLER

THE CRYIN’ HAWAIIAN

WILL THE SHRILL

Here’s hoping for a great series.

  2. Love the list. You knocked it out of the park! Here’s one that really doesn’t count because it’s not a nick name it’s his REAL name. But I laugh each time I hear it. He’s a pitcher for the Reds and his name is HOMER Bailey.
