As a huge Ricky fan, he couldn't EVER hit a curveball in A ball and he wasn't a very good baseball player. Well he wasn't good enough to make it to the bigs. We aren't talking Bo Jackson here. He played baseball so he could move his mom and two sisters to Austin and away from SD where he grew up. He liked it, but its not going to be worth it for him to try to Mike Jordan himself in little small towns in the eastern league and taking a spot away from those who really do care about the sport. And besides, his body is a wreck.
