The scariest-looking baseball player ever


I've heard a lot of talk. And Dave Stewart's name has been mentioned quite often. But no one has come up with a definitive answer.

I think we need to have an answer.

Who was/is the absolute scariest-looking player in baseball?

Comments welcome. Supporting arguments recommended.

A long post containing nonsensical yet vaguely-entertaining conjecture and speculation will follow at a time of my choosing.

Good day.

  2. I couldn't agree more on the Mad Hungarian. I would also say Goose Gossage in his Yankee and Padre days.

  3. I nominate Cecilio Guante and Albert Belle.

  4. Otis nixon without a doubt. Plus, he was a dodger.

  5. Jeffrey "Penitentiary Face" Leonard.

  6. Albert Belle in a serious way. Don Mossi in a Munsters way.

  7. Stewart's somewhat scary face was completely thrown off by his helium voice.

  8. My first thought before I read any comments was Otis Nixon. Plus he was a Ranger!

  9. Nine comments and nobody mentioned Randy Johnson yet? If he doesn't win scariest-looking maybe he can at least win ugliest.

  10. No Randy Johnson? Wait, Adam beat me to it.

    How about least scariest?

  11. Scariest as in bad-assest? or Scariest as in ugly? Because I wouldn't f with D. Stewart, to be sure. Way back when he called out Clemens for being a pussy in the post season, so that makes me love him.

  12. Going more for "crap your pants" scary than "ugly" scary.

  13. I'd have to give Donn Clendenon a nod for his '68 card. He looks like he wants to hit you with that bat instead of the ball.

    Also Gaylord Perry's 1969 card because he looks like Frankenstein.

  14. Dave Cash looked like the baddest dude ever when I was a kid. He even looked mean in an Expos uniform. Evidence: 1977 Topps, 1980 Topps.

  15. Joe Torre had that Godfather Mafia type look going for him back in the day. Go check out some of his cards with the Milwaukee Braves. He looks like Tony Soprano's meaner cousin.
