Jose Canseco Autograph Signing Appearance (Video)

Jose Canseco is a former star slugger, who played in the big leagues from 1985-2001. Canseco burst onto the scene with the Oakland Athletics, in 1986, winning the AL Rookie of the Year award, after blasting 33 homeruns. In 1988, Canseco was named AL MVP, when he became the first player in baseball history to have at least 40 long balls and 40 stolen bases in the same season. Canseco, along with Mark McGwire, were known as the “Bash Brothers,” the two big boppers behind the great A's team that went to three straight World Series from 1988-1990, winning the world title in 1989. Canseco finished his career with 462 HR and 1,407 RBI.

However, these days, the biggest thing that Canseco is known for is his 2005 book “Juiced,” where he claimed that 85 percent of MLB players were on steroids, including some of the game's biggest stars. After much consternation from players, past and present, many of the guys named were found to have indeed been on the juice. Ironically, Canseco (an admitted steroid user) turned out to be instrumental in causing MLB to finally enact strict anti-performance enhancing drug rules.

Tuesday night, captured the above original video of Canseco signing autographs at Fan HQ Sports Apparel and Collectables, in the Twin Cities suburb of Minnetonka, Minnesota. The Twin Cities was Canseco's first stop on his 10-week RV homerun tour, where he will travel throughout the US, and parts of Canada, making autograph appearances and trying to break the records for the longest softball and baseball homeruns.
