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."

From my experiences a defensive specialist is usually called a Labero. (La-bear-o)
It is now known as the "Jackie Robinson Award". Robinson won the first Rookie of the Year Award ever presented in 1947 and Major League Baseball recently changed the name of t…he award to honor Robinson.

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 an…y given time is 13 (9 players on defense, including the pitcher, one offensive player at each base, and one batter.) Now if 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.

"Funniest" is a matter of opinion, but I'll list some of my favorites from the link below. Various baseball players have had names that would cause people to snicker due to s…exual innuendo. Rusty Kuntz would be my first choice. Others have adopted nicknames meant for laughs, like Coco Crisp -- a nick first used by his sister to make fun of him. Other have names that make you wonder what the parents were thinking, like Rich Batchelor. And some people just have names that are going to sound silly no matter what, like Dan Uggla.
Currently no, but in the 40s there was someone named Heinz Becker.
