Sometimes on a baseball card you will see a player wearing a jacket, and on that jacket is not the player's given name, but his nickname.
Some names are cool - "Joe Table" is "Jose Mesa" in English.
Others are weird and kind of creepy - like Jeff Russell, who was apparently known in the Rangers clubhouse as "Rubbs".
