What’s in a name?  Well, when it comes to baseball, nicknames are an honored tradition that go back to the early days of America's national pastime. There was "The Splendid Splinter," Boston Red Sox left fielder Ted Williams  or "The Yankee Clipper," the nickname given to Yankees center fielder Joe DiMaggio.
