Inspired by one of Tim McCarver's flights of fancy during the ALCS, I present The Asdrubal Carrera Hall of Fame, open to anyone in unique possession of a particular first name among Major League baseball players: LIST.
You may be familiar with Honus Wagner, Eppa Rixey, Boog Powell or Yogi Berra. But have you heard the storied diamond exploits of Firpo Mayberry, Zoilo Versalles, Pi Schwert or Bevo LeBourveau? OK, then how about Mysterious Walker, The Only Nolan, or Phenomenal Smith?
For some dinnertime fun over the holidays, discuss the relative merits of Urban Shocker, Twink Twining, Pussy Tebeau, Bris Lord, Boob Fowler, Crazy Schmit, Creepy Crespi, Cuddles Marshall, Vinegar Bend Mizell, and Buttercup Dickerson. (Unfortunately, 12 other players keep Rusty Kuntz off this list.)
Other stunningly yclept combatants include Ambiorix Burgos, Alamazoo Jennings, Welcome Gaston, Chicken Hawks, Sixto Lezcano, Wheezer Dell, Yam Yaryan, Yo-Yo Davalillo, Admiral Schlei, Boss Schmidt, Brick Smith, Brickyard Kennedy, Broadway Jones, Cannonball Titcomb, Baby Doll Jacobson, Sweetbreads Bailey, Zaza Harvey, Bubbles Hargrave, Pickles Dillhoefer, Double Joe Dwyer, Cowboy Jones, Coot Veal, Mul Holland, Live Oak Taylor, Skyrocket Smith, Kaiser Wilhelm, Kewpie Pennington, Possum Whitted, Snooks Dowd, and Mox McQuery.
