Top Ten Coolest Names in Baseball History


The Top Ten

1 Coco Crisp

I mentioned the name Coco Crisp in an e mail, and my younger cousin was reading over my shoulder and asked, " Is that a kind of cereal sponsoring something? Or is that the name of the guy who created coco puffs? " I laughed hysterically, and explained it was a baseball player's name and she replied, " Who names their son CoCo? "

Yes, that's an awesome name. The reason he's my daughter's favorite player. My daughter also bursts out laughing when she hears Albert Pujols' name mentioned. - 5ToolPlayers
