Hope this one hasn't been done already...

That's all I could think of now, but I'm all in. :hp

Probably been done many times before, but I've never seen it, and as I love word games, I'll add Pete Hamm, Bob Lemon and the 'grain trio' of Johnny Oates, Sam Rice and Zack Wheat.

... and the 'grain trio' of Johnny Oates, Sam Rice and Zack Wheat.

That's great! :laugh

How about Dusty Baker and Dennis Cook?

Would Rob Deer count as venison?

Chili Davis and Sean Berry are players that have food in their name. I'm not sure what other people have food in their names, but these fill the bill.

Works for me! How about Cookie Lavagetto, Peanuts Lowrey, Dizzy Trout and Kevin Bass?

Herman Franks' (the All-Food Team's Manager) General Manager was Salty Saltwell. 1B Don Pepper got into 4 games with the Detroit Tigers in 1966. There was also an OF, Ray Pepper, who played in St. Louis for 5 years in the 30s.

Beany Jacobson pitched from 1904-07.

Bobby Wine played third, and was later the third base coach for the Phillies.

How about Todd Coffey and George Creamer? Or do you prefer your Joe Black?

Wally Berger was a good outfielder for the Braves and Reds back in the 30s. And since we know this sandwich guy, I had to look up Charlie Hamburg, who played LF for the Louisville Colonels in 1890.

Noodles Hahn set some pitching records for the Reds around the turn of the previous century.

For dessert: How about something Sweet. (Rick Sweet caught for the Padres, Mets and Mariners in the late 70s/early 80s.) But I was thinking about Candy Maldonado, who could be brought to you by John "The Candy Man" Candelaria. Or maybe Coco Crisp.

Very good!! I think you've got it!

We can make soup from Milt Stock, a side dish of Billy Bean, Jesse 'the Crab' Burkett, Rabbit Maranville and Chip Hale.

For dessert, we have Taffy Wright.

Mule Suttles, though I don't know anyone who would eat a mule unless they had nothing else.

We mustn't forget "The Georgia Peach," or Catfish Hunter; a side of Chris "Spuds" Sabo...with Pepper Martin.

Carl Furillo, better known as The Reading Rifle, was nicknamed "Skoonj" which comes from scungilli, the Italian word for a plate of snails. I would eat those (and have) rather than a mule any day. :D

No love here yet for Herb Hash? The man arguably had both a first and last name comprised of foods.
