On May 27, 2007, in the top row of Comerica Park, three men bore witness to the birth of a phenomenon, in the form of a squiggly punctuation. Detroit Tigers outfielder/designated hitter Magglio Ordoñez was finally given a nickname: The Big Tilde.
TheBigTilde.com is dedicated to furthering the message that The Big Tilde is — beyond a curly-haired lad with a swing like butter — a really, really, really good baseball player and should probably be named American League MVP.
What happens if someone else wins the MVP, you say? We’ll probably stop writing, and commit the cardinal sin of blogicide.
