Since I became interested in baseball more recently than hockey, my collection of favorites isn't quite as developed. But I have recently added to my little list: I have gone crazy for Jose Bautista, who plays right field for the Toronto Blue Jays. And as my new favourite player, Jose (I am always on a first-name basis with my faves) deserves a little attention here.
Jose is leading the league in home runs (he has 30, the next best guy has 25) and can throw a ball farther than I can run. He can also grow a full beard in about 4 hours. What more could I possibly want?
Your favourite player could be the best guy on the team, the one who seems to have the most character or heart or personality, the one opposing fans love to hate, or just the guy who looks the best in a suit. It doesn't really matter who you love or why you love him, as long as he helps you get into the game.
