5 Best Nicknames in Baseball

There are few things better in sports than a good 

nickname, but great nicknames are tough to come by.

 It must come naturally, but the player must also earn it. 

The local broadcast might have a nickname for the end of the bench guy. 

(1)  Javier Baez     It is pretty hard to top this one.

Baez is a great player (a rung below superstar, but he still signed a $140 million 

2. Noah Syndergaard  Unfortunately, injuries have sapped Syndergaard of a lot of his ability      

that allowed him to utterly dominate opposing batters when he was coined 

3. Fernando Tatis Jr A slick nickname for a slick player.

Tatis hasn't played this year but we haven't forgotten his cool nickname. Very fitting for the young superstar, and reminiscent of the great Chris 

4. Pete Alonso  It feels like Alonso's Polar Bear nickname has faded a bit since he years ago but it still rings true.

He's a big, broad player who comes across as a great guy. And he mashes homers like there's no tomorrow. 

5. Nelson Cruz  I mean, come on. That's awesome. 

Arguably no greater nickname for a guy who just hits deep balls over and over again. And he got a hot dog named after him!
