To avoid autograph seekers, groupies and possibly even their own camera-wielding teammates, Major League Baseball players often use aliases when staying at hotels. And while assuming a pseudonym can be a hassle -- after a few bourbons, who amongst us hasn't forgotten that they've chosen to go by Dr. Rosenrosen that evening? -- these leaked lists of players' alleged hotel check-in names, however, reveal that at least the players have a little fun with it.

Here are some of the alias highlights from hotel rooming lists that have made their way to the Internet (follow the links to view the entire lists).

Seems likely this ChiSox squad watched a lot of 1980s comedies on its charter flights.
  • Ferris Bueller
  • Rooster Cogburn
  • Dr. Kevorkian
  • Christy Mathewson (kudos on the confidence)
  • Dr. Sphincter Rumpczek
  • Judge Smails

Cleveland Indians, 2013

Members of last year's edition of The Tribe had no problems assuming women's names.
  • Jed Clampett
  • C. Electra
