What a Bunch of Dicks: Baseball’s Funniest Names
I’m sorry but I giggle anytime I hear someone with the name Dick. I just can’t help but feel they’d be more at home on www.fulltube.xxx than a pitch… A long long time ago there must have been a guy named Dick who was just such a jackass, that the name took on new meaning. I feel bad for the Dicks who are actually good guys, cause to me they are still dicks.
THE NUMBER ONE DICK
Boston Red Sox (1973-1976)
Seattle Mariners (1977-1978)
He’s no ordinary Dick with that last name. If I had the misfortune to be named Dick, I would definitely want this kickass name.
Used in a sentence – “Ride that Dick Pole ladies.”
THE RUNNERS UP
Dick Bass, Dickie Thon, Dick Green
Following the Dicks are a bunch of guys who I wish they would name cities after or at the very least stripclubs. Could you imagine the Human Resources problems there would be if these guys worked in an office (some of them probably do have sales jobs these days)?
Chicago White Sox (1979-1983)
Minnesota Twins (1983)
Detroit Tigers (1984-1985)
Hands down the best name ever. So many jokes, so little time.
Used in a sentence – “I was feeling a bit lonely so I drove down to the corner but all I saw was a bunch of Rusty Kuntz. I went home instead and broke out the lotion.”
THE RUNNERS UP
Buzz Nutter, Woody Held, Pete Beathard, Boobie Clark, Pete LaCock
Not sure what their parents were smoking or if they just had awesome senses of humor, but with names like these, who can’t love them.
Boston Red Sox (1961-1964)
Pittsburgh Pirates (1964-1965)
Chicago White Sox (1967-1978)
Alliteration at its finest, plus we get the word “wood” in there. Insert Beavis & Butthead laughs.
THE RUNNER UPS
Britt Burns, Sixto Lezcano, Steve Stonebreaker, Randy Ready, Clay Kirby, Pat Putnam, Minnie Minoso, Dick Drago, John Henry Johnson
Some guys’ names aren’t perverted or even rhyme. They are just ridiculous and awesome at the same time.
THE WINNERS (2-way tie)
Detroit Tigers (1974-1983)
Philadelphia Phillies (1984-1985)
What’s all the Wockenfuss about? The bushy haired, thick mustached Wockenfuss just screams pornstar from a website like https://www.nu-bay.com/. He is what every man aspires to be. Someone please make me a Johnny Wockenfuss t-shirt.
Oakland Athletics (1981)
His real name was Mack Neal Babitt. Even that is pretty damn funny. But somehow, someone nicknamed him “Shooty”. I have no idea what it means or where it came from and for once I am extremely disappointed in the Internet.
THE RUNNER UPS
Rod Scurry (hope I didn’t catch the Rod Scurry), Champ Summers, Vida Blue, Mickey Klutts, Johnnie LeMaster, Bake McBride, Doc Medich
I wanted this to be all Baseball but a few Football names made it in here cause they were just too good to leave off – Pete Beathard, come on!
I know I left off a million names here. We would love to hear some of your favorites!
