Jose Canseco – MLB Legend looking to take his career overseas as a coach or player-coach

Jose Canseco, a household name in the U.S. and baseball circles around the world, is a 53 year old MLB legend who spent his 16 years in the show smashing 462 baseballs over the fence, good enough for 35th on the all-time MLB homerun list. His long list of achievements as a player are highlighted by two World Series Championships, six MLB All-Star appearances, American League MVP and Rookie of the Year recognitions, and twice he was the MLB homerun leader.

His post MLB career saw Jose dawn the jersey of numerous independent professional teams, most recently for the Pittsburg Diamonds of the Pacific Association in 2016 at the age of 52. During his independent career Jose also took on the role as bench coach in 2010 with the Laredo Broncos of the United Baseball League and player/manager in 2011 with the Yuma Scorpions of the North American League.

Jose has a “larger than life” personality and has been featured on multiple U.S. TV series including The Simpsons, Celebrity Apprentice, MTV’s The Surreal Life and Jimmy Kimmel Live to name a few. It is no doubt his MLB legacy and star power could do wonders for a baseball organization overseas looking to create a buzz about baseball in their region or country.

Any organization seeking a head coach or player-coach and in need of some new energy and experience is encouraged to reach out to Jose’s agent, Mike Maguire at sportsagent82@yahoo.com.
