More Baseball Nicknames

David Schoenfield:

3B — Bob Ferguson: Death to Flying Things. Mariners announcer Dave Niehaus recycled the nickname for Franklin Gutierrez. The interesting thing about Ferguson is that he was an 1870s-era third baseman, not an outfielder, so his moniker was derived from his ability to snare line drives.

The trend of nickname articles continues. I am glad I could be a trend setter. This one had some I didn’t mention. Worth a look.
