I was wondering how many players had no conventional vowels in their name as Drew Smyly was pitching for the Tigers. 50 others was the total, including Fred Lynn, Tony Gwynn, Early and Jimmy Wynn. There was a mob of Lynches (11 total), 9 Flynns and one real Dyck.
On the other end, Al Alburquerque is one of 12 folks tied for the record with six vowels, including the guy with the longest last name on record in the bigs, Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
A database, the ability to write a vowel-finding function in Visual Basic, and a little time; yes, I do have a life, but it takes me on odd tangents at times.
