Andre Dawson was recently being interviewed on the local sports radio station. The topic of the conversation was the very young, and very talented Florida Marlins outfield.
Dawson was excited to work with the guys, and I have to imagine that having one of the best defensive outfielders from the 1980′s as your mentor is a pretty sweet feeling for Logan Morrison, Chris Coghlan, and Mike Stanton.
When discussing Stanton, Dawson was asked what player was he reminded of most while watching Stanton play. The answer? Jose Canseco.
According to Dawson, Stanton, like Canseco can take the game to another level. Extraordinary athleticism with dynamic power – the sky is the limit.
Just like it was for Jose Canseco… I have so many wonderful memories of watching the original member of the ’40/40 Club’ while suiting up for the A’s.
Such a great card – and sweet addition to the collection as well!!
