Former slugger Jose Canseco has signed with the Laredo Broncos, an independent minor league team, according to ESPN.com. Canseco, 46, will serve as bench coach and designated hitter for the Broncos.
"We gave him this option," Broncos General Manager Jose Melendez said. "He felt baseball was over with. We’re the ones who encouraged him to come back and return the the game of baseball and back to where his beloved fans can see him again."
Canseco is an admitted steroid user who has thrown several of his former teammates and associates under the bus through books and radio interviews.
Seems like a publicity stunt.
