About Texas Gal

Pitched four years for the Philadelphia Athletics, and then played shortstop for seven years for the Montreal Expos. Taught Rickey Henderson to steal a base. Taught Nolan Ryan to throw a punch. Taught Mickey Mantle to drink a beer. Threw one seven-hitter and seven no-hitters. Wonderboy was my creation, and first Jobu shrine was in my locker. Often called "the next Dustin Pedroia". Always wear high socks and eyeblack. Prefer to slide headfirst.

  3. I just got to thinking about the Olympics because of this. I cannot wait to see what you Ladies have in store for us next summer.

  4. Hopefully lots about wrestling, the world’s oldest and greatest sport. I really hope that Mo Lawal makes the team, because DAYUM. The man is fine.
