Nicknames

Minnesota Twins and Washington Senator Nicknames

In the past, the term “nickname” meant something totally different then what it does today but the idea is still the same. In the past, nicknames were a descriptive name added to or replacing the actual name of a person, place, or thing, a familiar or shortened form of a proper name. Today; nicknames are more commonly used as an alternate name used to identify yourself in a chat room or maybe a shortcut for identifying a recipient in an e-mail address book. In yester-year it was highly likely that someone else gave you a nickname and today you pick your own nickname.

I don’t think there is any other sport that has nicknames as cool as baseball does. Granted, the nicknames today are not a plentiful or colorful as they were in the past but never the less they are still out there today. Some were created by baseball writers and broadcasters, some by the fans and some by teammates. They seem to be a dying art in today’s era, probably because today’s ballplayers take themselves way too seriously. Sure baseball is a business, but aren’t they really just playing a game? As I was out taking my daily walk in today, I thought that a list of Twins/Senators nicknames would make an interesting addition to this web site so here we go. I will start a list and if any of you out there know of others that I may have missed, just drop me a line and I will add it to the list. 

I found this great poem of all time great baseball nicknames on the internet by William “Sugar” Wallace and thought that you might enjoy it.

One Response to Nicknames

    Fun lists. I hadn’t thought of Sandy Valdespino in years.

    One I looked for was ‘Oil Can’ Boyd. Always thought that was a great nickname.

    Thanks
