He’s Baaaaaack!
The Mexican League threw him out. His girlfriend dumped him. But like the proverbial bad penny, he keeps turning up. Jose Canseco (shown here with formed Red Sox outfielder Mike Greenwell) is back, this time in New England. By now you know that Terry Francona will be part of today’s 100th anniversary celebration of Fenway Park. Curt Schilling won’t be coming. Neither will Theo Epstein. But Jose Canseco is there.

I am in fenway ballpark ready to get introduced .lots of memories

And he’s going to be sticking around for awhile.
Not with the Red Sox, mind you. But he’ll just be a few vintage Canseco shots away in Worcester, MA playing for the Tornadoes in the independent CanAm League. The Tornadoes signed Canseco to play first base and DH for their upcoming season which starts May 17. Canseco joins at least one other former major leaguer on the Tornadoes roster. Infielder Abraham Nunez played 12 seasons in the majors, eight with the Pittsburgh Pirates.
In other Canseco news, the Texas Rangers cap that Jose was wearing during his infamous “home run header” in the 1993 game against the Cleveland Indians is up for auction online at Heritage Auctions. The bidding, which is currently up to $3250, ends on May 3, 2012. Canseco hopes to buy it back.

My Rangers cap from the 4 Base Error header is in the Heritage auction right now would be great to get it back hope the bidding stays low
