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.

  1. I love when ballplayers do that their bats! Carlos Gomez kisses his bat. So cute.

    And Wily needs lotion on his hands in the next to last picture. And an extra “L”.

  2. Ugh- if you were a Sox fan you wouldn’t love him so much. He strikes out and I can feel the breeze down here in D.C. Seen him in the outfield? Scary.

    But he does look kinda cute biting his bat.

  3. I am a Sox fan, and I never said I loved him. I said he was hot. Two totally different things.

    When people are relieved to see J.D. start in your place? You’re bad.
