Default Wrap Around Guys:

Noting that Jarrod Saltalamacchia is now listed as retired, who will we look to provide the most 'crowded' jersey?

Dom Thompson-Williams, an outfielder in Mariners' camp. He's been at A Ball so he's a bit away from making the big league club. When (if) he gets there he'll own the record.

Bob-

The trend (and assumption) of having both parents last names on the jersey makes it too easy. How about single last names?

Longest non-hyphenated last name by character I could find for a Spring Training invitee was the White Sox prospect Trey Michalczewski, but he looks like a longshot of ever getting a callup, unless he happens to be an absolute wiz with the glove.

Lots of 11 character names out there, maybe a couple 12 character names. Comes down to letter formation I guess.

I recall Bill Van Landingham with the Giants - with the space, that's 14 letter spaces...equal to Saltalamacchia and one more than Michalczeski.


After checking BBR, the space is left out so it becomes VanLandingham with 13 letters - and tied for second place.

Sorry I wasn’t aware of the qualifiers
