Ballplayers with long last names often use just the first syllable of their name to personalize their equipment. Maz on a bat or glove would belong to Lee Mazzilli, for example. What to do when your last name is Assenmacher?

Write it as it is said, not as it is spelled. (His name is pronounced Ossenmocker.)

    With that last name, can you really blame him?
