Origin of Rich Hill’s bizarre nickname revealed

Rich Hill

It’s Players’ Weekend in Major League Baseball, meaning players are permitted to put nicknames or other messages on the back of their uniforms for the weekend.

Some of the nicknames are pretty easy to explain, while others are more personal or off-the-wall. Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Rich Hill’s definitely falls into the off-the-wall category.

So where does “Dick Mountain” come from? The answer is when Hill was a member of the 2011 Boston Red Sox.

Hill must not mind it too much if he’s willing to put it on the back of his uniform. It’s certainly a better nickname than this one, all things considered.
