March Moniker Madness Update #1

Earlier this week we announced that we were taking suggestions for player names for an NCAA-style pool called “March Moniker Madness“.  The response has been overwhelming . . . we’ve received 487 valid entries as of this morning!

Obviously, we’re going to have to adjust the initial size of the field a bit!  But in the meantime, take a look at the list of valid entries below, and feel free to submit any missing names.

A few clarifications and reminders:

1) No names of guys who never made the Majors.

2) No Negro Leaguers who never made the Majors.  (We might run another bracket for these gentlemen later)

3) Please please check the spelling of the name prior to submission.

4) Please refer to the player’s “top line” name listed on Baseball Reference to determine the “valid name” for submission.

5) No “nicknames”, unless it has acquired “top line” status on Baseball Reference (i.e. “Goose Gossage” is listed as “Rich Gossage”)

Thanks so much for your enthusiastic response.  A new update will come later this week.
