Well, we've got another nickname for Miguel Cabrera, and he provided this one himself. Today's 1909 retro uniforms featured elbow-length sleeves. Miggy had an apparent distaste for his, and hacked them off every which way. The result was hilarious. The jagged sleeves billowed in the breeze, and looked just like something the Flintstones' little Bam Bam would have worn. Since he's also a slugger, Bam Bam is a perfect fit. I christen you, Miguel Cabrera.
