As you may already know Jose Canseco and his brother Ozzie will be playing for the Yuma Scorpions this upcoming season. Jose, who signed as Manager, will also be playing 1B and DH making him the first full-time player manager in professional baseball since Pete Rose.
No matter how you may feel about Jose and the controversy surrounding him, it doesn’t change the fact that he is a very physically attractive man-and so is his twin brother Ozzie.
If the presence of the Canseco brothers alone doesn’t raise the temperature in Arizona then the arrival of this young pitcher sure will.
A week ago I found myself waiting for an extended period of time in the Yuma Arizona Airport.
I was departing for my return trip home after visiting my parents at their home there.
My arrival at the airport was not done in a very timely manner so I hunkered down in the small lounge area for what I knew would be a long wait.
There were just two other people there which was not surprising as the Yuma Airport is very small and the city itself isn’t exactly a place where you would expect to find a lot of tourists or people traveling on business.
It didn’t take long before the three of us were “family” each with his own interesting story. I was there for a long time and when my flight finally prepared for take off I felt as though I was leaving my friends.
One of those new friends is Greg Pellici an adorable 23-year-old Pisces who will be joining the Scorpions on May 24th.
A left-handed pitcher throwing between 87-92 MPH Greg has a mean slider and I can’t wait to sit under the mist with Daddy and Mommy as we watch him do his stuff.
This young man made a lasting impression on me and I hope he goes as far in life as his heart can take him because with his heart, that would be a very long way.
Ladies, Greg is single and I can tell you with confidence that the girl who win’s this one scores a prize for life! Honesty and integrity abound with this guy and so does his love for his family.
Greg-Yomamma loves you!
Jose had this to say to the Yuma Sun
“I think the younger players that come in aren’t going to get incredible instruction on just how to play the game right, how to play the game at a major league level, but also off the field. If they have a family issue, girlfriend issues, how to handle the media, we can actually help them there because I’ve done it all. I can show them where all the land mines are.”
“Let’s focus on the game,” Ozzie Canseco said. “We’re putting together a great club. We’re trying to resurrect the Yuma Scorpions and that’s positive energy.”
Both brothers said they are dedicated to showing they are committed to the league, the Scorpions and Yuma as a whole.
