One would expect a team of All-Time Georges to include player as Brett, Bell, Foster, Sisler, Kell, and Hendricks. What about the Georges that weren’t known as George – not George as a middle name, but as a first name.
The players who went by either their middle name or other names as Chippy, Jumbo, Scoops, Specs, Foghorn, Paddy, Slick, Sarge, Zip, Tug, Squanto, Icehouse, Stump, Lefty, Shorty, Possum, Pinky, Mule, Birdie, Tuck, and others.
Ladies and gentleman – Now taking the field, the All-Time Georges that you may not know as George.
