The Buck(cherry) Stops here for Baseball!

Sportsnet ran the "Jays Connected" show before their Minnesota game today and they had the best highlights of the year accompanied by this rockin' song, which I also thought would be perfect for the weekend!

Yes, eat (or sing) your heart out Lionel Richie!

Baseball BUCKS leaving their mark on the Blue Jays this season:
  • TV announcer Buck Martinez
  • Catcher John Buck, who has had a career year with twenty home runs and a .279 average. Those homers are a franchise record!
Before this year, John Buck spent his first six big league seasons in Kansas City. That is where Buck Martinez (also a catcher) started his career in 1969. He spent his first eight seasons in KC and then wrapped up his career by playing six seasons with the Blue Jays, finishing in 1986. Martinez hit 35 home runs as a Blue Jay.
