There have been many nerds in the history of baseball and it has fallen upon me to find the 15 nerdiest.
This is no easy task as there are many different factors when it comes to determining a nerd.
There are the looks. Anything out of the social norm, either incredible acne, a lanky figure or the human incarnation of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.
There's also the smarts: intellect, street smarts, being tech-savvy, proficiency in many skills.
Then there's gaming habits, skills and social habits. Most nerds tend to stay introverted and those that don't, go on the extreme extroverted route.
I will be using all of these criteria in determining the 15 nerdiest figures in baseball history. Notice how I said figures and not players since this list will include some GMs and managers.
