Morning Mail: Jose Canseco wants his home run blooper hat back

Apr 20, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT


Jose Canseco is on an epic Twitter run right now — he was recently busted by his girlfriend for Twitter flirting with various babes, and has spent the past two days in damage control. It really is hilarious — you should take a look. But before that, he brought up the subject of an historic piece of memorabilia. The hat that Canseco wore as a Texas Ranger when a batted ball famously bounced off of his head for a home run in 1993 is up for auction at Jose would definitely like to reclaim that hat.


The current bid is $3,230 … dirt cheap for a piece of perhaps the the most hilarious piece of MLB uniform of the modern era. If you don’t count David Wright’s batting helmet.

Oh well, it’s all the Worcester Tornadoes’ problem now.


What you missed while wondering if opening a marijuana dispensary across the street from a high school is a good thing …

Meanwhile, in Arkansas …


The Bobby Petrino Motorcycle Club t-shirt.

    This play was sort the beginning of the end for Caneco. I never get tired of watching that clip.

    $3230 for an item of uniform that was directly linked to the most hilarious blooper in baseball history? Bargain!
