I am old enough to remember Hoyt. He was a knuckleballer, unsurprisingly. They used to use that huge "pancake" mitt to catch him and still had a hard time keeping the ball in front of the plate. He taught Wilbur Wood a few knuckler tricks that helped him, too.

In 1958 Cleveland GM Frank Lane allowed him to be picked up on waivers by Baltimore because
he was alarmed by the number of passed balls . I believe ( but am not sure ) that he was the first pitcher that the catcher used the large mitt.

Now Shaq wants to pound on him.
He says he is willing to fight Canseco in a mixed martial arts bout. "If he wants it done, he knows where to find me " Shaq said . " He can be high off whatever, and I'll be high off Frosted Flakes ".
Canseco lost a mixed martial arts bout in 77 seconds against 7 ' 2 " S. Korean Hong Man Choi in 2009.

Did you see Canseco on some talk show a couple years back? All dressed in women's clothes or something like that? That dude has lost it, that juice has made his brainy crispy.

Here's a bit of goofiness from Canseco with a local connection. In a nutshell, the Yuma Scorpions were visiting the Lake County (Ill.) Fielders, owned in part by Kevin Costner. The Fielders players weren't getting paid so they refused to play....J

[-Fielders hitting coach Pete LaCock, a former Cub [nice name Pete!] who has seen many strange things, took over as interim manager. He put all listed pitchers in positional spots for the game. Non-pitchers pitched.

To even out the playing field, Scorpions player-manager Jose Canseco did the same. He also named himself starting pitcher.-]

Sounds like something out of my long-lost youth. Right field OUT!

Lol . Canseco pitched 6 innings and got the win. Or maybe that was Ozzie Canseco his twin.
Jose was supposed to be at a celebrity boxing event for which he was paid but sent his brother instead . They got caught because of tatoos that Ozzie does'nt have. Weird dude.

Jose seems like a case of Arrested Development on Steroids.

He dressed in drag on "Celebrity Apprentice". He also played a f.ag on another episode. That was for charity, so I would give him a pass for that.
