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).
