The List: ESPN's Baseball Player Name Pronunciation Guide

Thanks to our sources at ESPN -- OK, we don't have sources, more like a leak -- you can now pronounce the names of Major League Baseball players just like Joe Morgan and John Miller try to do, between Morgan's long, often incorrect anecdotes about Morgan's playing days.

Example: Albert PUJOLS (POO-holes)

baseballrelated.com
Though talking like John Miller and Joe Morgan is discouraged, pronouncing names correctly is encouraged.

The list is quite long, so it's going to appear after the jump. To search for a single player's name, hold down the Ctrl (or the Apple button, Mac users) button and hit F.

WE HAVE 5 BASEBALL ANNOUNCERS HERE.  FOUR PRONOUNCE SANCHEZ AS SAN-CHEZ (AS IN SAND) AND ONE WHO SAYS SAHN-CHEZ.    WHO IS RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA?

Benny AGBAYANI (ag-BUY-an-i) is wrong. The accent should be on the second to last syllable, not the second syllable as shown in your pronunciation. (ag-buy-YAN-ee).

rchrdodea

Porcello should be and needs to be pronounced PORCHELLO!!  YoYo Ma doesn't play a sello, but a chello (in pronounciation) for a cello!
