Player Whose Name Was a Sentence: Steve Sharts

Because he never made the majors and because he was out of affiliated baseball by 1990, Steve Sharts does not have a player page at FanGraphs. What he does have, though — by virtue of his amusing name, if nothing else — is a place in the heart of most every male in the coveted 18-34 demographic. Plus the author’s colleague Dayn Perry, one assumes, who’s not between the ages of 18 and 34 but who is contemptible and of low breeding.

Jim Nabors stars as Steve Sharts, a starting pitcher with “explosive stuff” forced into a short relief role due to the unfortunate timing of his spastic colon.
