Craig Robinson of Flip Flop Fly Ball is something of a baseball creative wizard. He released a book of baseball infographics and brings an aesthetic to the game that you won't find on most baseball blogs.

His latest venture is also quite rad. He writes on his Tumblr: "I like baseball, I live in México, I own a box of Lego bricks. It was only a matter of time."

Lego likenesses of famous baseball players? Yes, we're in. See his first six creations above. He's released another since we've started this post and we're hoping he puts out more.

Can you name the players above? A few are pretty obvious. The others might take a guess or two. We'll put the answers below, but wholeheartedly recommend you go see Robinson's creations in their full 950-pixel glory. If you ask us, Robinson has another book idea on his hands here (it's like the rapper coloring book and that's getting printed). Or maybe he could partner with Lego to create limited-edition baseball figurines.

Either way, we're buying.
