Charlie Hustle - Pete Rose Report Abuse
Rose perhaps did the most with the least, making up what he lacked in talent with grit and a never say die attitude. One of the hardest working players ever gets one of the coolest blue collar nicknames

"Shoeless" Joe Jackson Report Abuse
One of those legendary baseball nicknames from the old days - Joe once played the second game of a double header in his socks because his new cleats were too tight. A legend was born.

I love this name. It sounds cool, is kind of weird and original and also perfectly describes one of the greatest hitters of all time, who was known for being extremely skinny

The Toy Cannon - Jimmy Wynn Report Abuse
The coolest and most original nickname in sports, Jimmy Wynn was only 5'7" but had tremendous power as a hitter. The name fits him perfectly.
