As a Yankees fan, I am in love with rookie sensation and (somehow) MVP candidate Aaron Judge. The giant of an outfielder for New York has cracked a major league-leading 15 home runs thus far through the season. But, in today's social age, there's more to Aaron Judge than just his bat. To be specific, Judge has a hashtag, #AllRise, and a cheering section in Yankee Stadium known as "The Judge's Chambers." But what if some of the greatest players to ever walk on the diamond had these things also?
Player: Babe Ruth
Cheering Section: The King's Quarters
Why? Ruth had many nicknames, but two of them that I specifically thought of for his hashtag and cheering section are the "Sultan of Swat" and the "King of Crash." These two nicknames really bring out of the regal side of Ruth's persona.
Player: Walter Johnson
Cheering Section: The Train Station
Why? Johnson's nickname was "The Big Train," so people would definitely be "on board" (get it?) with his train-themed hashtag and cheering section.
Player: Bob Lemon
Cheering Section: The Lemon Orchard
Why? For those who don't know, Lemon was a seven-time All Star pitcher for the Indians in the late '40s and '50s who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1978. He wasn't necessarily always sour, but his last name certainly was. Had he been playing in a more technological age, all of Cleveland would be using his hashtag when he pitched. And his cheering section? Lemons everywhere.
Player: Dennis Eckersley
Cheering Section: The Eck Deck
Why? He had a great mustache and the name of the cheering section is catchy. It's as simple as that.
Player: Luke Appling
Cheering Section: The Hospital
Why? He was nicknamed "Old Aches and Pains!" How funny is that?!
What are some hashtags and cheering sections you would give to some of the other all-time greats? Write them in the comments section below. Thanks for reading this and I hope you enjoyed it. Check back soon for more of "all the buzz on what wuzz."
