Nolan Ryan may be best known for leading Major League Baseball in no-hitters (7), career strikeouts (5,714) and seasons played (27), but he also happens to be the best player in our MLB Name Game chain.

MLB NAME GAME

The premise of our MLB Name Game is simple: create the longest string of players in which the preceding player’s last name is the next player’s first name. With considerable help from the Baseball Reference website, we were able to construct a chain six players long — Gary Nolan 🔗 Nolan Ryan 🔗 Ryan Howard 🔗 Howard Earl 🔗 Earl Clark 🔗 Clark Griffith.
