    I've searched as well, though it doesn't surprise me. It wasn't until the early 80's that people (especially couples that ended up divorcing) started hyphenating their kids' last names.

    Yep it might be hard to believe but it's really true.

    I always thought that John-Ford Griffin, who's had a cup of coffee with the Blue Jays, had the hyphen between the Ford and the Griffin. Apparently not...

    I think it is true. I couldn't find any. The closest may have been Rafael Santo Domingo.

    There has been a few players with hyphenated first names, mostly from South Korea and Taiwan. Byung-Hyun Kim, Shin-Soo Choo, Chien-Ming Wang, Sun-Woo Kim, Dae-Sung Koo, and Sang-Hoon Lee for example.
