I knew #9. I thought of it at work today. 14, 16 and 17 and 18 still don't ring a bell. I never heard them called by those nicknames. #22 got me. #34 is totally obscure. #35 too. Paul Waner was "Big Poison", Lloyd Waner was "Little Poison".

Charley "Paw Paw" Maxwell. He was from Paw Paw Michigan. Always seemed to hit a Homerun when he played on a Sunday.
