it’s a nickname waiting to happen

baseball: maryland @ unc, game 3

baseball: kinston indians @ winston-salem dash

Double dipping with two from the archives, since today guys-I’ve-seen-play-before-they-were-famous seems to be a theme: Alex White (#6) and Dustin Ackley (#13), top, both of whom made their MLB debuts this year, during their last ACC home series at Carolina; and bottom, freshly promoted Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall, when he was with the Kinston Indians — who are, sadly, in their last season as a long-time Indians affiliate this year — both in 2009. (Chisenhall, on the right, is standing with ex-Tar Heel Tim Fedroff, currently at AA Akron for the Indians.)

“What’s Lonnie short for?”
“Lonald.”
