Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
Would have posted this sooner, but I've been having major connectivity problems. I think squirrels are chewing on my DSL line. :-P
Anyway, if you're wondering what Bubba's doing these days...there's a video here. Or watch it on YouTube here. It's one of those Christian testimony things, and he talks a bit about what happened after his baseball career ended.
Yes, I'm sorry to say for those who are still hoping he'll return to baseball - it sounds like he really is permanently retired, and happy to be so. He says his career ended in 48 hours, when he failed his physical with the Mariners. After playing baseball since he was four years old, it was all over at age 31. He was scared at first, but says he's happier now than he's ever been, working in the family business in a 9-to-5 job, able to spend time with his family and with his church.
One cute thing...he talks about when he was drafted, and says it was 28th overall. Actually, it was 23rd overall. I'm kind of surprised he wouldn't remember that; it's kind of endearing.
Anyway, it's nice to hear about what he's up to these days, and I'm glad he's happy.
