So, what does Tom Nieto stand for?

Top "catcher face" in the National League, 1986
Only wore a bathrobe on the baseball field
Manager could always count on him for doughnut runs

Nose had been broken a couple of times by foul tips
Inside those eyes you could find love
Eyebrows were furrier than a couple of chinchillas
Took squatting to a whole new level
Obviously sat on his hat for a few hours a day
