Glenallen Hill is nicknamed “Spiderman” but not because he swings through the air or is a fan of the comic.  The outfielder -- who has coincidentally played for eight different teams -- got his nickname from an incident spurred on by his significant arachnophobia.  Early in his career while with the Blue Jays, Hill was having a violent nightmare about spiders.  While still asleep, he tried to escape from the phantom nightmare spiders and fell into a glass table.  This nightmare gaveHH Hill cuts on his toes and elbows, carpet burns on his knees, landed him on the 15-day DL and bestowed upon him his nickname.
