Baseball Player Name of the Week

This week we marvel at…

[1]

Brock Bond [2], currently of the Richmond Flying Squirrels [3]. (That would be the San Francisco Giants EAS affiliate – their logo is an acorn – but does anyone else now have a powerful urge to watch actual flying squirrels play baseball? That would just be adorable).

[4]

Honestly, I’m not sure this one should even count as a NotW, because that is the fakest name I’ve ever heard. It’s what a 17-year-old boy would name himself if he went into the Witness Protection Program… either that, or a lost Dirk Diggler [5] character. Still, best of luck to Brock, a Missouri native. He plays second base, reached AAA last year, and appears to have an excellent eye [6] and very solid batting average, though (oddly, given the moniker) no power to speak of.
