Nickname #25 -- April 15, 2013

Frank Baker was a great third baseman for the Philadelphia Athletics and the New York Yankees.  He hit for a good average in a time when home runs were not common, but he earned the nickname Home Run Baker by hitting two key home runs against the New York Giants, against Rube Marquard and Christy Mathewson, in the 1911 World Series.
