Wiki

Covelli Loyce "Coco" Crisp (born November 1, 1979) is an American professional baseball center fielder with the Oakland Athletics of Major League Baseball. Crisp is a switch-hitter and throws right-handed. He previously played for the Cleveland Indians, Boston Red Sox and Kansas City Royals.

Crisp was originally nicknamed "Coco" by his sister and brother who teased him that he looked like one of the characters on the Cocoa Krispies cereal box. The nickname did not stick, however, until he started playing AA baseball. The team had all the players fill out a questionnaire form to get to know one another. Covelli listed "Coco" as his nickname on the form. His teammates thought the name was funny, so they had it put on the scoreboard during the game. After a week and a half, he was traded to another team, but the nickname stuck, and he has been "Coco Crisp" ever since.

Crisp was born in Los Angeles, California on November 1, 1979. He was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals in the 1999 Major League Baseball Draft.
