On BallPark Franks

Everyone has a sense of pride about their name. Given baseball’s rich history, thought I’d develop an all-time team with only Franks. I even got picky as I didn’t stretch into Francis, Franklins, Franciscos, Francos, or even middle names or last names; thus stuck with given first name and went-by names. Which means I passed on K-Rod, John Franco, Julio Franco, and even Herman Franks.

I think these guys could compete … Ladies and Gentlemen … presenting the All-Time BallPark Franks! (with links to their career)

      Orlandos? Well Tony could sing the National Anthem! … but an interesting question indeed.

      Thanks for the comment.


    • David,
      Yes, some pop in the middle of the lineup, plus the top 2 set the table! Depth in pitching worries me a bit.

      Thanks for the comment!
