As sure as Billy the Kid, he stole his career, okay?

He rode up on horseback, and he pulled beside the stagecoach, and he pulled his mask over his face.  No one could have picked him out of a lineup.  He just ran across the outfield and dove, and by the time he landed, all the higher-rated outfielders were gone, and the prize was his.

Just the way Butch Cassidy did it.

And just like that, the legend of the Outlaw was born.

Next thing, he just may steal your heart.

Hopefully he is one of the keys that will bring fans out to the ballpark this year. If he’s going to give it his all on the field then the least our fans can do is go to the games and support him and the rest of the team.
