What if our last names actually describe who or what we are? Years ago Topps Magazine ran an article depicting players as literal interpretations of their surnames. In keeping with that tradition, I have combed through the rosters of teams and found a startling number of players with potentially fun last names. Here are players from the Baltimore Orioles.
A portion of the Orioles pitching rotation has a nautical theme this year, with Brian "Largemouth" Bass, Chris "Manta" Ray, and "Chris-Tal Clear" Waters.
The remainder of the pitching staff with literal last names include new comer Rich Hill, "old timer" Jamie Walker, and not-yet-out-of-the-plastic Chorye Spoone, who has yet to make his MLB debut, and therefore not on the active roster.
Closing out the Orioles' roster is former Cubs rookie, Felix Pie, bats left, throws left, and goes great with vanilla ice cream.
As is tradition for the Orioles
