When I saw the title to this thread I immediately thought of Urban Shocker. Sound like a good name for a rap album...

The old time nicknames told a lot about whay your teammates thought of you for instance:
Bubbles Hargrave- for his manliness.
Rube Waddell- due to his big city life style
Fatty Briody- for his love of healthy living
Old Hoss Radbourn - not sure what this meant, except that he was pretty much the man.
"I do not think baseball of today is any better than it was 30 years ago... I still think Radbourne is the greatest of the pitchers." John Sullivan 1914-Old athletes never change.
