Thought I'd share with the group some of the names on the "boy named Sue" team: Lady, Sadie, Ginger, Patsy, Pinky, Topsy, Dolly, Nellie, Baby Doll, Sal, Kris, Robin, Kelly, Sandy, Candy, Dale, Gail, Pat, and of course, Babe and Christy.

I know some of these are nicknames, but that's how they appear in the Wis database. Too bad I couldn't use last names too; Mark Loretta would have fit in nicely along with Babe Ruth.
Have rounded out my roster with Sherry, Kitty, and Peaches. Trying to get all unique names if I can.
That is awesome. My Irish team has 7 different players with the last name of O'Brien.
I hope you're kidding with you say you have 7 O'Brien names...max is 2 per last name per your category.
50 million dollar team here I come

It is done. I had to give up my 13 mil Tip O'Neill.

I'm assuming that O'Neal, O'Neill, and O'Neil are different names.

It's strictly limited to the WIS database eman. So if WIS calls him Topsy Hartsel that's what you go by. Pre-1885 players don't exist in WIS database, so you're clear there. EDD (with Double D's) Roush is cool so long as no other Roush is in the database.

I'd love to have you in the league.

Thank you Eman...that's 90% of the fun for a league like this. It's never been done before I bet you.

I'll take our last 2 spots so that we can get this going.

Note: We may need 1 owner since Unnaturals dropped from another one of my leagues. If so, the category open would be:

16. Seniors and Juniors are the head of the class – All players on your team must have Sr. or Jr. in their last name such as Ken Griffey, Sr. or Tony Armas, Jr. (use www.baseballreference.com as a guide)

I'll take the Sr and Jr team...just let me know...
