Next, a good ole country boy. A former Minor Leaguer on his way to Mexico before the Peanuts signed him, pitcher and coach: Jason Blanton.
- Blanton signs some country music.
Next, Mr. Smooth. Released out of spring training by the Texas Rangers, a man with a smile planted on his face. The ladies man, Johnny Washington.
Reporter asks, “What is your favorite color?”
“My favorite color is red. I’m a red kind of guy. Love red, especially love. I’m a loving type of person,” says Washington.
He was a member of the 2005 Florida Gators World Series club. He plays the hot corner and is hungry for some action on the diamond. Mr. Daniel Brooks.
