Life imitates art. I just started a historical league in 1940. My Dodgers are playing their first series against the Giants and we just ran into this guy.

Johnny Dickshot

I'll just say I hope he's not a spray hitter.

Oh, and now the play-by-play just said, "Dickshot measures it." It's the gift that keeps on giving.

My first round draft pick in 2011 was closer Julian "D-Lee" Ortiz......must be a HUGE fan of Derek Lee!

Yes, but he wasn't a rookie for the Houston Astros in 2011. OOTP randomly came up with the name "Bill Veeck" for some random player. That screenie is from an older version of OOTP, when 2011 was a future year. Kind of funny, I think, although "Manuel Noriega" is my favorite random OOTP name here.

My personal fav I've seen so far is River Green.

Also in the repeating sector Howard Howard.

I know there were some joke names in the names file, but... Dick Head is a classic.

You need to give him the nickname of Old Peg Leg or Wreck.

Doesn't count, it isn't game-generated.
