Bobby Grich? Assuming that Grich means something in some language other than English. German perhaps? Like a task one undertakes at a grainery or brewery or something?

Yeah, I guess I should have stipulated "a complete sentence in English."

Anyways, here's one I came up with - Graig Nettles.

Are there any others?

Bob Walk and Dennis cook are only sentences if you are using the imperative... not sure those are good sentences. Randy wolf may not make it even with that.

Hmm point taken.  Guess that rules out TJ Beam too.

Trivia:

Name a former MLB player whose name is a complete sentence.

Bobby bonds, Ernie banks, and Tim raines. As elsewhere, Smokey Joe wood while Lee may and Rudy May and Wilbur Wood, but Mel Ott.

Hack Wilson! and Trot, Nixon! work as an imperatives. Pie, traynor! George burns. I know because Jim Tho'me.

Chuck Tanner works either way, I suppose. All the Chucks work. So do all the Bills. Who should pay? Bill Mueller. Okay.

But more pure ones like "Davey lopes" have more appeal. I really liked Earl Combs and Josh Towers.  Howie Shanks. Jeff burroughs. John mayberry.  Charlie hayes, but only in season.

Red Ames, while JJ Putz and Ted Sizemore (sighs more).
