From Tex to Big Tex, the nicknames fit for the Texas Rangers

You didn't have to watch Mike Hargrove in the batter's box for long to discover how he earned the nickname "The Human Rain Delay." It took just a tip of the cap from Daniel Joseph "Rusty" Staub to show why Montreal Expos fans had called him "Le Grand Orange." You needed only one look at Rico Carty to see why the big Dominican was called "Beeg Boy." And you could even watch Jim Kern's pitching motion and partially understand why he was called "Amazing Emu."
