What names are baseball players given?
Baseball players aren't "given" names once they make it to the majors. Baseball rosters display players' legal names. Though of course, some players have nicknames that fans affectionately refer to them with. For example, David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox is known as "Big Papi," but his away jersey still reads "Ortiz."

Jack "Muddy" Waters was a centerfielder who played for the Toronto Maple Leafs of the International League circa 1960.

A favorite story of his playing days was his unassisted triple play for the Maple Leafs, when he caught a shoetop line drive on the run in shallow center and tagged out the runner leaving and arriving at second moments later.

At any one time only 18 -20 players are actively playing (There can be a DH per team or not) . During play of the game, the most players that can be on a baseball field at any given time is 13 (9 players on defense, including the pitcher, one offensive player at each base, and one batter.) Now i…f your talking about professional baseball such as the MLB. There, is a rule about a 25 man roster where you can only have 25 players active on your team at any given time. This does not mean if a player gets hurt in the middle of the game or just prior to the game that you can replace them with another player not on the 25 player roster when the game has started. BUT, in September the 25 player roster extends to a 40 player roster. So, in theory at the least, you can have a monumental struggle of a game in September that uses all of both team's players and that would be 80 players used in one game. (MORE)
