The Name Game

The BaseballEvolution crew often enjoy playing with the names of Major League Baseball players. Amongst other fun games, we make players names into ballpark food, we come up with our own nicknames for certain players, and then of course there is the ever popular "I'm thinking of a player" game.

Here is another fun game with baseball player names - The Major League Baseball Name Game. The goal is find two players who share a common name, one player's first name is the other's last, such that their names can be connected. For example –

Clue: "The player whose baseball card appears in the top left hand corner of the Baseball Evolution home page and the player whose baseball card appears in the top right hand corner of the Baseball Evolution home page"

Answer: "Danny Darwin Cubillion"

See? The rules are simple. You can, of course, come up with your own, but here are a couple of dozen to get you started. First, read the clue. When you are ready for the answer, move your mouse pointer over the clue, and the answer will appear.
