Chris Berman’s ESPN Baseball Nicknames

20th Anniversary (1980-2000) of keeping the list

Back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back...

He… could…. Go… all… the… WAY! (It’s been used during baseball too)

Last Updated on: 4/30/2016.
Where did all this come from?

The nicknames actually started back back back when Berman was attending Brown University (‘77 graduate, History). He and his buddies would come up with the names while drinking their “favorite beverage.” The author started logging nicknames on paper shortly after Berman started using the nicknames in June of 1980 (the first nickname: wither John Mayberry "RFD" or Frank Tanana "Daiquiri"). According to Berman, the nickname "just came out."

Berman has been with ESPN® since a month after the beginning, and has indicated, a-la George Brett, that he would like to spend his entire career at ESPN®. The list has been a Microsoft Word document since 1994, and portions of the document appear on the Internet sites listed below.

For a 20th anniversary interview from ESPN®:

Some other facts (from ESPN®.com):

  • Berman regularly hosted SportsCenter for 11 years, but although his assignments have changed, he always returns to host a few in the winter, "just to keep DiMaggio's hitting streak alive."

  • Berman has received much attention for his more than 800 nicknames, given mostly to baseball players, such as Roberto "Remember the" Alomar and Jim "Two Silhouettes on" Deshaies that often reflect his interest in history and music.

  • A long-time aficionado of rock and roll, Berman has appeared on stage singing with Huey Lewis and the News several times, has appeared in a video with Hootie and the Blowfish, and was joined by Glenn Frey of the Eagles for a special "Hotel California" Super Bowl edition of "The Swami."

  • Berman's nickname rule: "Make sure it's not derogatory. It's got to be fun."

Where can you find Berman these days?

  • NFL PrimeTime™ (1990- ), where he does football nicknames!

  • ESPN SportsCenter (1979 - ). Does very few of these anymore, except for special occasions like SportsCenter’s 20,000th show on May 17, 1998, or in the winter, to "keep his Joe DiMaggio hitting streak alive."

  • ESPN Baseball Tonight (1990 - ). Mostly Sunday nights, before the NFL kicks in.

  • Calling MLB games, usually on Wednesday nights.

Nickname Links on the Internet – copies go to each of these people in order to obtain the most nicknames (since I don’t have a web site):

  • Mr. Goodbytes’ (Tony Marchi) List of Bermanisms©, currently at Version 2.0:

  • Chris Harris’ shrine to SportsCenter now contains this file among the list of nicknames he has tallied

Note: Baseball Nicknames tracked only. Somebody else can do the other sports!
