Baseball nicknames used to be a big part of the players in the league as almost every talented superstar from the early 1900’s up until the end of the century had some sort of nickname attached to them. From guys like “the Great Bambino” Babe Ruth, up until someone like “the Big Hurt” Frank Thomas, superstars in the Major Baseball League and nicknames went hand in hand. Since the turn of the century, baseball nicknames has become a bit of a lost art, but while those two previous stars didn’t make the following gallery.
Ten MLB Nicknames To Remember
