You remember Wonderful Terrific Monds, the Atlanta Braves minor leaguer who made Jon Bois' Baseball Player Name Hall of Fame? Of course you do. Did you know his full name was actually Wonderful Terrific Monds III? And did you know that Wonderful Terrific Monds II today signed a letter of intent to play college football for the Buffalo Bulls?
