Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
To baseball, that is. Aaron Boone played his first major league game after undergoing open heart surgery.
Boone was always one of my favorites, even before he hit that walkoff homer. He didn't hit much during the regular season, but his glove was pretty solid. And you had to give him credit for admitting he blew out his knee playing basketball. He could have lied and said it something else, but he told the truth, even though it voided his contract and cost him millions.
Best of luck to ya, Boonie.
