WHAT SORT OF MAN READS PACO CAMINO?

Pirates79a
Nicknamed the Cobra, he’s a badass batsman standing tall in an unbelievably cramped pro locker room. The first million dollar contract hitter remembered for his killer throw to third base to nab Jim Rice in the 1979 All-Star Game, this 2-time National League Batting Champion, 3-time Golden Glove Winner and 7-time All-Star once knocked the cover off a baseball. That’s why no one says shit if he wears one shoe and accessorizes with wristbands and a cowboy hat. The muscle of the 1979 World Series, this Paco Camino Man inspired MVP Willie Stargell, unheralded Phil Garner and reliever Kent Tekulve (and his weird sidearm pitching) to deliver three clutch cargo victories, rallying from the brink of elimination against the Baltimore Orioles. We Are Family indeed.

Do I detect some slight over-pronation and maybe the start of a bunyon on the paco camino man's left foot? Does MBT make baseball spikes?

I'm pretty sure this is what the Pirate's locker room STILL looks like.
