Let's start at the start, as the saying goes. Matthew over at Number 5 Type Collection held a contest to determine which were the most unique monikers among rookies this year, with the prize being cards from your favourite team prior from prior to 1980. I recalled Adeiny Hechavarria of the Blue Jays, specifically how his name is routinely butchered by guest PA announcers during Junior Jays Saturdays. At least that took the title of most mispronounced name away from Edwin Encarnación.
I was among the five winners, and my loot arrived yesterday.
We open with a couple players I hadn't heard of, but at least they earned a mention in the Mets 50th Anniversary yearbook. A Ray Sadecki 1973 card, and a Ted Martinez from 1974.
