In the spirit of the Baseball Names II threads started by Edex, and Baseball III started by Bearcat500, post a major league baseball player's name using the FIRST letter of the LAST name of the posted player as the FIRST letter of the next FIRST name.

Example: Roger Maris
Mike Piazza

First letter of last name = first letter in first name.

Some rules:

NO CONSECUTIVE REPLIES TO THIS THREAD unless there has not been any activity in the previous 24 hours. In that case there will ONLY be one consecutive reply.

The player must have appeared in at least 10 major league games in the modern era (1902-current) Any commonly known name for a player will work, therefore Babe Ruth or George Herman Ruth would either be an acceptable answer as would either Richie or Dick Allen.

I'll start with:

Mark Buehrle

bungee, are you ignoring janilane like he/she ignores you?

you(bungee) did :Danny Darwin
janilane did: Donn Pall (probably playing off Yu Darvish, but still a D
lan5lan did : Paul Bako
zim city did: Billy Beane
Hubba did: Bob Cain
janilane did: Chone Figgins again
goletagiant did : Frankie Frisch
janilane did : Frank Thomas
I did : Thomas Howard
.
so the next post needs to start with the letter H

and both of you need to stop ignoring people and play the game the way it was intended to be played.

Using the letter H

Henry Louis Aaron

He got along with all the other ball players
I suggest both of you do the same.

I had a request, I will try to be reasonable in fulfilling it, should the request be sincere. If it's not sincere, we can continue down the same road four horsemen have obligated me to travel.
