Japanese term or phrase: 黒いアニキ
This is a nickname of a baseball player. I'm wondering if there is anything other than "Black Brother" that woud work here.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Black Brother
Explanation:
I think you'll have a pretty hard time finding any other term than "Black Brother" for "黒いアニキ". As you know, "黒い" is "black" and "アニキ" is a slangy term for "brother" so I can't think of any other way to translate it unless you want to be less literal and more creative. HTH.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thank you for your note. The questions you've asked are the same questions that I have. I have no other context concerning the nickname. The text simply states that 黒いアニキ is what the fans call him. Thanks again for your suggestions.
