My votes are Ron Karkovice and Willie McGee. Karkovice was a nice sturdy backstop but always looked like he ate some bad sausage. Willie looked like he was in constant pain...obviously a nice player. As an ugly guy myself, I feel I can spot the "lookers".

Old, dense-headed hammers are cool. Best nail pounders.

With the admission that no one would ever mistake me as one of the "beautiful people" ... my nominations are ...

For the "BIG, DUMB & UGLY" Award, a tie between Roger Craig and Don Mincher

For the "FUGLY TEETH" Award (all shapes, all sizes, all directions ...), Hoyt Wilhelm

I'd have to say Otis Nixon. He looks like he has been dead for for at least a year.

It's funny to me that someone mentioned "Oscar Gamble".
I work with his ex-wife here in Alabama.
I will have to let her know that he got voted in.!!

This thread has amazed me! Indeed, Otis aka "Oh-Teece" is on my short list as well...anyone else think Derek Jeter looks like a handsome alien bobblehead doll?

Don't forget those classic Don Mossi ears, especially on a 66 Topps.

This year's World Series had a tremendous array of ugliness on both sides...

1. Eckstein- see the result of #5...
2. Lackey- what the heck is that on his face & can it give us an inning or two?
3. Speizio-what's goin' on with the hair, Scott? The word is Sham-poo...sham-poo...
4. Santiago- Looks like snuffleupagus(sp?) mated with a sharpei
5. Percival- "you gotta perty mouth"...to the tune of dueling banjos
6. Webber- c'mon...too easy

I'm sure I missed a few...little help?

I ran across the following in "The New Bill James Historical Baseball Abstract" and thought it was worth sharing ...

Chapter: The 1950's
Section: The Man Who Invented Winning Ugly

"I have always kind of identified with Don Mossi. Don Mossi had two careers as a major league pitcher, one as a reliever and one as a starter, and he was pretty darned good both times. No one who saw him play ... remembers that, because Mossi's ears looked as if they had been borrowed from a much larger species, and reattached without proper supervision. His nose was crooked, his eyes were in the wrong place, and though he was skinny he had no neck to speak of, just a series of chins that melted into his chest. An Adam's apple poked out of the third chin, and there was always a stubble of beard because you can't shave a face like that. He looked like Gary Gaetti escaping from Devil's Island.

One of the problems with choosing ugliest and handsomest players is that a player who looks [just] short of grotesque in one pose or photograph will look fine in another. Susie (Don James' wife ... ) showed me a picture of Hoyt Wilhelm in which he looked positively handsome. I assured her it was just a bad shot.

You never have [that] problem with Don Mossi. Don Mossi was the complete, five-tool ugly player. He could run ugly, hit ugly, throw ugly, field ugly and ugly for power. He was ugly to all fields. He could ugly behind the runner as well as anybody, and you talk about pressure ... man, you never saw a player who was uglier in the clutch."

Nice one DE. Being ugly in the clutch is an incredibly undervalued talent!

It's an ugly scan ... but perhaps that's appropriate ...
