Baseball's All-Preppy Team

What are the most blueblood-sounding names in major league history? We know Black baseball had figures such as Cumberland Posey, Laymon Yokely and Knowlington Burbage, but what about The Bigs? Here are my choices (I look forward to seeing some of yours):

1B- FERRIS FAIN
2B- NAPOLEON LAJOIE
SS- ROYCE CLAYTON
3B- WADE BOGGS
C- ELSTON HOWARD
OF- HOSKEN POWELL
OF- KIRBY PUCKETT
OF- CHRISTOPHER TROTMAN "TROT" NIXON
STARTING PITCHER- STERLING HITCHCOCK
STARTING PITCHER- WAITE HOYT
RELIEF PITCHER- HEATHCLIFF SLOCUMB
RELIEF PITCHER- HOYT WILHELM

Backstop was a close call- Walker Cooper and Carlton Fisk are great selections, but how many Elston's do you know?
