Happy Birthday Jose Canseco

Happy Birthday to the talented and controversial baseball player Jose Canseco, born in Havana, Cuba on July 2, 1964.  Canseco played for a number of Major League Baseball teams, including the Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees, and Chicago White Sox.  In June 1990 Canseco signed a five-year contract for $23.5 million; at that time, he was baseball’s highest-paid player.  Known for his powerful batting as well as speed and agility, Canseco was a formidable sportsman.  He also garnered serious disapproval for his self-admitted use of steroids and his rude behavior off the field, which he detailed in his 2005 book, “Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant ‘Roids, Smash Hits, and How Baseball Got Big”
