Happy Birthday To The Canseco Brothers!!!
Twin brothers Jose and Ozzie Canseco turn 50 years old today.
While one brother reached the pinnacle of baseball success and the other barely made a dent as a professional player, the Canseco brothers have left a mark on the sport that will never be forgotten. Namely due to Jose’s actions regarding steroids and bringing light to its influence in baseball, Canseco will always be remembered and linked to performance enhancing drugs and their effect on the game.
But too often, it is forgotten how dominant Jose was during his playing days. Even at the end of his career, Jose was able to fill the stands with fans wanting to watch him play and he continued to deliver the long ball for them.
What I would like to give Jose is a ‘Re-do’. He says that if he could take back the books he wrote that he would. He says he never would put someone through what he has been through. I’d like to test that theory. But more than that, I would like to see how good and strong of a contribution to the game Jose could have made had he been the ideal teammate with a ‘team first’ mentality.
Happy Birthday Jose!!!
