Ernie Camacho

Ernie pitched for the Cleveland Indians in the 1980’s. He was quoted as asking, “were there any black catchers in the Negro League.” So he wasn’t the brightest guy around.

He also blamed a loss on a tired arm from signing 100 pictures before a game.

Al Hrabosky

Al pitched for the Cardinals, Royals and Braves from 1970-1982. He is currently the color commentator for the Cardinals. He also owns a restaurant by Busch stadium called Al Hrabosky’s Ballpark Saloon, which seems appropriate since he looks like the crazy guy from every old west movie you’ve ever seen.

Deion Sanders

Deion Sanders is of course very well known because he had successful careers in both the NFL and MLB. By successful I mean he played in both, but there’s no way I’m going back to look at his numbers.

Deion is probably thankful for his years of practice multitasking. He’s better able to do his job as a commentator for the NFL during the draft this weekend, while going through a messy divorce.

Jason Giambi

I wanted to get some baseball players up on the page this week with the opening of a new season, but from what I know way more about movies from the 1980’s than I do about baseball players. So here’s one from the last few years.

Jason Giambi proves that with hard work, determination, and the will to cheat, you can succeed in this world.
