The Calgary Vipers of the Golden Baseball League will sign former NHL all star Theo Fleury to a pro contract today and he will make his professional baseball debut Friday against the Yuma Scorpions in a double header.
Even though Fleury is 40 years old, he will undoubtedly be the most talented player on the Vipers. Have you ever heard of the Calgary Vipers? Me either. I didn’t even know there was a Golden Baseball League until right now either. Sounds like the baseball version of the Senior PGA tour or something. Ya know, for players in their golden years. They say he’ll just be around for those 3 days, but I smell a second career for this guy. I bet at his age he could play a mean 1st base. I am wondering if the Vipers will let him take the field or will they pinch hit for him? Lets just hope he doesn’t fill his bat full of superballs or something and make a fool out of himself. Gary Coleman ruined it for everyone.
