“A, You’re Adorable, B, You’re So Beautiful…”

(Kids, ask your grandparents…)

So I’m watching the game last night and Detroit reliever Al Albuquerque is pitching to San Francisco first baseman Brandon Belt. So I got to wondering: how often to batters and pitchers with alliterative names face each other?

I just did a quick look at Baseball Reference and discovered there are 24 players whose first and last name begins with “A” and more than 200 with “B.” That’s where I stopped counting.

What would really be freaky is if the catcher was also an alliterative… (Bruce Benedict, anybody?)
