Introduction

Dog owners who enjoy baseball likely know that the pastime works two-fold. On one hand, you can get your dog outside, have it field a few grounders, chase deep balls into the outfield or just jog with you around the bases. On the other, you can relax with your companion at home and veg out on hours of game time, howling at the screen in tandem over runs scored or errors committed. But for some, it might not be enough, or for others who are less able-bodied, not even a possibility, and for those people, you can always elevate your game by giving your dog a famous baseball name, one that will stand with you in memory as long as it’s already stood the test of time, one that hits your love for your furry friend and baseball in one sweet swing.

Famous Baseball Players Dog Name Considerations

While attributing player names verbatim could easily cover a vast amount of potential dog names, it’s important to consider various aspects of the dog’s color, breed, and personality type if you’re looking to derive any type of fun and/or depth out of the naming process. 

For instance, in terms of color, fans of the Boston Red Sox who have a dog with a black and white speckled coat could aptly use Boyd, after pitcher Dennis “Oil Can” Boyd. Owners with dogs that have feet that are a different color from their legs or the rest of their body could roll with Joe, Joey, or Jackson after “Shoeless” Joe Jackson. 

Those who have specific breeds could also take advantage of the breadth of historical names baseball holds, such as calling your Bernese Mountain dog Bernie after Bernie Williams or calling your Bulldog “Baby” after Orlando Cepeda, nicknamed “Baby Bull.”

Of course, personality is not to be ignored either, and out of all options may provide the best depth of all. Yankees fans who have dogs that also enjoy fishing would be hard-pressed not to use at least some part of Jim “Catfish” Hunter or Lawrence “Yogi” Berra. 

Regardless of what you choose, whether you’d just like to name your dog after your favorite player, similarities or not, or reach into something deeper to form inside jokes or test friends’ baseball knowledge, naming your dog after one of the greats will undoubtedly be a great base from which to start your relationship.
