“I eat dingers for breakfast, and I steal bases to fall asleep.”
Baseball stars (well, American born ones, anyway) cover a broad array of proudly American personality types. There’s the overweight men who can throw a ball very fast and become millionaire professional athletes, the overweight men who can swing a stick very hard and become millionaire professional athletes, and others. But one player, while not the most widely known baseball player, is by far the most American.
That is Chicago Cubs perennial minor leaguer, Bobby Scales.
