Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
Well, it's September 19 - Talk Like a Pirate Day.
Which means it's also the anniversary of the only walkoff homer Bubba Crosby ever hit. (Was it really four years ago?)
What a game that was. Possibly my favorite ever. Not least because the division race was so tight that year. It turned out to be the pinnacle of Bubba's career, though I thought at the time that it was only the beginning.
Earlier this month, "Romo" left this message at the Bubba-Crosby.com Guestbook:
We saw you in 2004 Yankee Spring training - Bradenton, FL vs. Pirates (the best field for fans!). ARod just signed on as a Yankee, but all we heard in the stands were cheers for Bubba! We of course followed your career closely that year - what a great year you had. Hope you are well and come back to baseball! Miss you!
