Jean Shepherd was never played in a game.

 
 

 

Guess the Stiff!

His nicknames were "Mr. Padre" and "Captain Video". Really? That's the best anyone could do for an 18 time all-star, 7 time silver slugger and 5 time golden glove award winner? How about "The San Diego Hammer" or "Black Lightning"? Jesus - do we have to think up EVERYTHING around here?
