What’s in a Name? The Top 10 Player Names in Major League Baseball

Major League Baseball is a sport that highlights and embraces nicknames and "terms of endearment." They have ranged from "Wild Thing" to "The Machine" to something as simple as "A-Rod."

I wanted to leave the nicknames in the background for a few minutes and focus on the names shown on the back of baseball cards.

This slideshow will count down the Top 10 player names in Major League Baseball. It was inspired by a certain winning pitcher from Sunday afternoon's ball games.

I hope you enjoy the list, and please feel free to offer your feedback and alternative suggestions.

As a small disclaimer, I chose to focus on more baseball-related or fun "play on words" names, as opposed to simply the longest and/or most confusing.
