Name a current or former major leaguer with all five vowels in his first name. Then, name one with all five vowels in his last name. :-)

(Note: There's no trickery here. Add-ons like 'Junior' or 'the Third' don't count. Nor do middle names or nicknames. And Y doesn't count as a vowel here; I'm looking for A, E, I, O and U.)

Good luck!

That was an awesome (and totally cruel) question. I had to keep looking until I found some!

Last name came quickly: Ed Figueroa.

But the first name was a handful to find. I finally came up with: Aurelio Lopez.

Doh, I read major leaguer as manager. Time to get my eyes checked.

Nice try by Shock, but this isn't in fact a trick question. :-)

Even though he misread the question, chalk one up for utterchaos, and congrats to everyone else who got this one right, too. This was a toughie...
