3. "Shoeless Joe," Joe Jackson

In a game against a team from Brandon Mill, Jackson suffered blisters on the soles of his feet from new cleats. The blisters were so painful that he had to remove the cleats before an at bat. Once on base, fans berated Jackson, calling him a “Shoeless son of gun.” From there the name stuck. (AP Photo)
