Description

Rick Ankiel first_name comes up as Richard. Not sure if you are using a library to interpret first names, but this could potentially be an issue.

Closing Comment

You probably want "display_name" instead. See also /api/issues/103 From the API documentation: first_name Player's legal first name. Keep in mind, some players are commonly known by their middle name, nickname, or shortened version of their first name
