What’s In A Nickname? — Part I

Voice From The Bullpen

October 27, 2013
By J. PAUL LOMBARDO ( , The Post-Journal

Nicknames are such a part of so many people's lives, especially in the world of sports and even more so within the sport of baseball. I know many may not follow the sport as closely as others, but the focus of this piece is designed for those who do follow the sport and who may have heard some of these nicknames which are specifically from the game of baseball. You are right if you guessed that a "Voice from the Bullpen" test of knowledge is coming right around the corner. (Hey, it's that World Series time of year, so you had to expect a baseball piece sometime around now.) Part II, which will come at a later date, and will test your knowledge of nicknames in a variety of genres, but for today, it's time to think baseball and see if you can recall who wore these monikers in America's Pastime ... (you need to give their full real name, first and last)
