Chico Esquela was a Garrett Morris character (SNL) that coined the phrase, baseball been berra berra good to me. Tony Micelli played 2B for the Cards before becoming a housekeeper. It's a stretch, yes, but I challenge anyone to come up with a better choice at 2B. Joe Shlabotnik was the hero of Charlie Brown. Something always came up that prevented Charlie from meeting his hero. Shlabotnik was hit .004 for a season, getting one lone bloop hit. He later went on to manager and was fired after calling a suicide squeeze with no one on base.

There are a couple prominent names we passed on, see if you can point them out to us.
