Quiz time: Can you match the old-school player to his bizarre nickname?

The Millville Meteor. Kung Fu Panda. Dat Dude. Truly, these are high times in the art of the baseball nickname (no matter what Barack Obama said). But with all due respect to the baseball stars of today, there's just something unique about the monikers given to players of the past. (Don't believe us? Just ask the Freshest Man on Earth.)
While we all love a good old-timey nickname, though, just how well do you know your nickname history? Luckily, you can take the quiz below to prove it -- just match the name with the corresponding player. And if there are any favorites we left out, by all means, let us know in the comments.
