  • Ham as Nickname

    Hello,

    May you know the origin of Ham as Nickname in Baseball, like Ham Hyatt?

    Some says it from Ham-handed others from Ham-fatter.

    In Hyatt's case it's simply a short version of his name - Robert Hamilton Hyatt.

    Same for Hamilton "Ham" Patterson and Thomas "Ham" Hamilton.

    None of them seem to qualify as "19th Century" players, by the way.
