On All-Time Don’t Call Me Georges

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.

    • Lester,
      There was a time in the 70s the Reds had 5 Georges on the roster … Seaver, Foster, Griffey, Sparky, and one other I can’t recall.
      Thanks for visiting as I knew you would like this one.
