You hear it often in baseball, players’ names reduced to a folksy, one-syllable moniker ending with a Y.

Or players being called by a nickname rather than the alphabet soup that makes up their proper name.

The Braves have had a few of those, including the player with the longest name in the majors.

You know them all. From their place in the batting order to the order of the letters in their name.

See if you can recognize how these Braves names are spelled. Share your results and challenge your friends.
