It’s almost Valentine’s day. All of us have the capacity for love and devotion. Some people have wives and husbands; some have boyfriends and girlfriends, some have dedicated booty calls. Some of us can only love baseball.
Valentine’s day is kind of a sham, but it does put people into mind of romance. And as a wise person once said, what could be more romantic than baseball?
So, in honor of Valentine’s Day, let’s think about these people who love baseball, and have some squishy heart specific names (h/t to B-Ref for some of these names!). Have a great weekend, and I hope you get some snuggles.
Jim Ray Hart
Teddy Higuera (because everyone needs a teddy bear on Valentine’s day, right?)
(Sweet) Lou Piniella
And some hugs to make it all better!
