Names I Can’t Believe Aren’t Famous – Spike Owen

11 Aug

1989 Donruss - Spike Owen

Everywhere I looked (which included Wikipedia, Baseball Reference and the back of this baseball card), it looked like Spike Owen’s actual, real first name is Spike.  That is incredible.

Obviously, I wanted to know more.  Could this be real?  Could a professional baseball player’s given name be Spike?  I then found this.

Real name, Spike.  Real awesome, yes.

Hats off to you, Spike Owen’s Parents.
