Lou Gehrig owns a few nicknames (The Iron Horse, Larrupin’ Lou, etc.), but this is easily the most unique.

During his playing time, most uniforms were worn loosely so ballplayers could be relaxed and comfortable. But due to his large thighs and rear end, Gehrig often looked un-athletic, thus leading his teammates to give him this hilarious nickname.
