Phil Garner "Scrap Iron" ...baseball

 

Jack Tatum "The Assassin"...football

 

Lenny Dykstra "Nails"...baseball

 

Hammerin' Hank Aaron...baseball

How about Randy Johnson, who had 2 nicknames.....went from Wild Thing to the Big Unit....

 

Ironically, both are nicknames given to me by the wifey.... ;)

I thought it was Mitch Williams who they called Wild Thing (though...probably a dozen players got that after Major League and Ricky Vaughn came out)

FYI....Charlie Sheen actually throw a baseball at approaching 90 mph.

 

OK, he apparently was able to get up to about 85 mph....but like many others of that era when the movie came out.....he juiced up:

Wasn't Michael Dean also called "Alligator" Arms?

 

Maybe we should give Pierre the nickname "Streetcar"? Chris Berman will.
