Any baseball fans out there in HTF-land? Hope so.

Here's a nice little time-killer involving the names of baseball players.

I'll put down the name of any ball player [past or present; living or dead; doesn't matter]. The next poster must then name a player whose first name begins with the first letter of the LAST name of the player from the previous post.

Examples......

Johnny Bench...

followed by...

Ben Oglivie...

followed by...

Oscar Gamble ...

and so forth.

---------------------------------

I'll start it off with one of the coolest names I've ever heard for a baseball player (you Atlanta fans should remember this lefty) ........
