Friend of the VORG High Heat Stats asked me the following question recently:
High Heat Stats @HighHeatStats
In case you missed this, Donte Whitner of the 49ers is apparently changing his last name to Hitner, as a testament to his umm . . . hard-hitting style on the field (he’s been fined $21,000 by the NFL for a hard hit during a recent game).
So, here are the MLB players whose last names make real words when you drop the first letter. You can see that Elroy Face should have been an ACE, Josh Thole has a HOLE in his swing, Dave Winfield should have played the INFIELD, etc.
