Here is a Quiz

Nicknames have always been a part of baseball. We have Pee Wee Reese and Babe Ruth as classic examples. For some reason, we don't expect our managers to have nicknames. But they do. Good examples would be Connie Mack and Buck Showalter. Mack's real first name was Cornelius. Buck's real first name is William. How many of you knew that?

So here is the quiz. Name these current major league managers from their real first names (sometimes the middle name is included). One will be really easy. The rest, not so much. The Fan will have the answers tomorrow.

Which current manager is:

  • Johnnie B.
  • Harry Ralston
  • Oswaldo
  • Thomas Brad
  • Wilbur (Wilbur??)
  • Clarence Edwin

This is an open book quiz. Good luck.
