Padres with Matching First and Last Initials

Denis Poroy

Last week Padres organist and Gaslamp Baller B Cres had a great idea, like he tends to do on a regular basis.

We started ping-ponging some names back and forth, and a few others got in on it, before I scoured the master list of everyone who has played for the Padres. I found 50 names that fit the bill, only to find out that I missed one when I double-checked. It was still 51 after a third and fourth check, so I stand by it. With the addition of Josh Johnson and Seth Smith the total grows to 53. After a bit of discussion we concluded that the quiz would be a depressing waste of everyone's time.

With that in mind and not wanting this newly found information to go to waste, here's the list:

  1. Alexi Amarista
  2. Alex Arias
  3. Andy Ashby

  4. Bob Barton
  5. Billy Bean
  6. Bruce Bochy
  7. Brian Boehringer
  8. Bret Boone
  9. Brad Boxberger
  10. Brad Brach
  11. Bobby Brown
  12. Brian Buchanan

  13. Chris Cannizzaro
  14. Cesar Carillo
  15. Clay Condrey
  16. Callix Crabbe
  17. Cesar Crespo

  18. Doug Dascenzo
  19. Dave Dravecky

  20. Gary Green

  21. Johnny Jeter
  22. Jerry Johnson
  23. Jonathan Johnson
  24. Josh Johnson
  25. Jay Johnstone
  26. Jimmy Jones

  27. Kevin Kouzmanoff

  28. Luis Lopez

  29. Mike Maddux
  30. Mike Matthews
  31. Marty McLeary
  32. Miles Mikolas

  33. Phil Plantier

  34. Roberto Ramirez
  35. Randy Ready
  36. Ronn Reynolds
  37. Royce Ring
  38. Rene Rivera
  39. Roberto Rivera
  40. Ruben Rivera
  41. Rafael Robles
  42. Rich Rodriguez
  43. Roberto Rodriguez
  44. Ron Roenicke

  45. Scott Sanders
  46. Sonny Siebert
  47. Steve Simpson
  48. Seth Smith
  49. Steve Swisher

  50. Tom Tellmann
  51. Tim Teufel

  52. Wally Whitehurst
  53. Woody Williams

I initially titled this post "53 Friars with Alliterative Names" but realized that wasn't quite accurate. There are other players with alliterative names, Ken Caminiti and Jedd Gyorko for example, and Phil Plantier is on this list despite his last name not being Phlantier.
