Player Pronunciations Added; Master List of Pronunciations, Nicknames, Name Notes

Posted by Neil on April 18, 2013

Today, we're happy to announce the addition of a new dataset -- a pronunciation guide for the names of roughly 1,800 Major and Minor-League ballplayers from throughout history (mainly active players and guys from the 2000s, but a number of historical notables are in there as well). We've pulled this info from a number of different sources, so as always, please email us if you have any corrections or additions you'd like to see.

Also as a matter of note, we added master pages for player nicknames, name notes (aliases, name changes, etc.), and we finally linked the list of Twitter handles on the Frivolities page. Enjoy!

    No love for Alfred Pesano on the name notes page?

  2. Does anyone know how Chris Nichting's last name is pronounced?
