    [QUOTE=hellonewman]Choo-Choo Coleman

    Choo-Choo Coleman is my favorite because when asked by Ralph Kiner on Kiner's Corner how he got the nickname Choo-Choo, his reply was "I really don't know Ralph."

    My favorite Choo-Choo story is when an announcer (Kiner or Lindsay Nelson)
    asked him "what's your wife's name, and what's she like?" Coleman replied
    "Her name is Mrs. Coleman and she likes me."

    I've heard the nickname "Squatty" used for him by some Red Sox players in the 70's. Anyone ever heard that used?

    I think people have also pinned that name on some player recently, however, someone who's still playing -- I forget who.

    I'm surprised this isn't being talked about more, Houston had a rainout so it might be cause AP wasn't originially schedueled to pitch. But he's coming to Tampa, so it'll be interesting with him seeing familiar faces.

    Let's not confuse "nicknames" for "known as the".

    When Mickey Mantle walked into a room people didn't greet him with,
    "Hello Commerce Comet!"

    Thurman Munson was commonly called "tugboat" by his closest friends on the team.

    Some of my favorite nicks: "Spook" Jacobs, "Whammy" Douglas, "Ice" Williams
