It’s a close call as to whether Jose Canseco is more famous for his accomplishments on the baseball field or the headlines he generated off the field, but you can definitively say that he’s been a notable sports personality for more than 20 years. Born in Havana, Cuba, Canseco came to the U.S. as a child, and along with his twin brother Ozzie, quickly made a name for himself as an athlete. At the age of 21 he made his debut for the Oakland A’s, and in his first full season in 1986 he bashed 33 home runs to become the American League Rookie of the Year. With fellow power hitter Mark McGwire, Canseco formed the “Bash Brothers,” and the duo packed fans into baseball stadiums around the country to watch their titanic home runs. The first player to hit 40 home runs and steal 40 bases in a single season, Canseco played with numerous teams during his long career and retired with 462 home runs. Since retirement, Canseco has remained in the spotlight thanks to his tell-all book “Juiced,” in which he admits his own steroid use and reveals other MLB stars who did the same thing. A follow-up to the best-selling book is already in the works.
