The Cincinnati infielder rookie, who made his debut on the 18th, is expected to be recorded as the hero of the longest name in MLB history.
His full name is Christian 안전놀이터 Encarnacion-Strand. Write 27 characters, including an affix (-). MLB Dotcom said Encarnacion-Strand easily beat Simon Woods Richardson, who debuted last year, to become the owner of the longest name. Woods Richardson calculated the last name, including the space between Woods Richardson, in 22 letters. It was based on the name the player himself submitted to the league. For example, in the case of Mike Trout, his real name is Michael Nelson Trout, but his name he submitted to the league is Mike Trout.
According to MLB Dotcom, Christian Bethancourt is the second longest name after Encarnacion-Strand and Woods Richardson. To write down the name of Bethancourt, who played in the KBO as a member of NC in the past, you have to write 20 alphabets.
Excluding the first name, Encarnacion-strand ranks first with 18. There are two more than Woods Richardson (16). However, only Encarnacion is written on the uniform. The uniform appearance seems too narrow to put all the last names.
