MC Hammer was named because of his likeness to Hammerin' Hank Aaron. To get the answer to this question, you need to look at where he was when he got this name. He was a ball-boy for the Oakland A's games in the 70's. The only player from that team at that time on the Maxim contest list was Reggie Jackson.
