In the past, I have honoring teams of the same name. Being MLB All-Star Game week, I dedicate this post to the players who played and they were the only one with that name. Since there was enough to fill two teams, I decided to split the alphabet, but that is the easy part!
Wilver went by Willie, and Sanford is a Sandy. Then Lawrence went by Yogi instead of Larry. Several players have gone by Prince, but is there a true Prince?
As I stated in the previous post, since it’s my post, I have to make some decisions. Besides, given that certain letters of the alphabet decrease the selection pool.
Since there are so many names, I created two teams by alphabetical first names. The L-Z team will be competitive in the all-time league, but it would not be favored for the championship. After all, the A-K counterpart is loaded.
By the way, for the other all-time teams, see Categories in the Sidebar, and then Sports > All-Time Teams, or simply click here.
Since baseball history provides so many players being the only player with that name, I divided the team alphabetically. Ladies and gentlemen, now taking the field – the All-Time Only Guys L-Z.
