Not-so-great baseball brothers: Ozzie & Jose Canseco
The twin brothers played together in 1990, with Ozzie playing just nine games, five as a pinch-hitter. Make that pinch-“hitter,” as Ozzie struck out in four of his five pinch-hitting appearances. He went 2-19 overall, with one walk, one RBI, and ten strikeouts.
The nadir of the Brothers Canseco experiment (before their assault trial and boxing switcheroo) came on July 26, 1990, when Ozzie and Jose combined for six strikeouts in a loss to the California Angels, which we are pretty confident in calling a single-game record for identical twins. The A’s never had a chance to use Ozzie as a Jose impersonator, a role he’d later fill at card shows and boxing matches, but they did have Felix Jose on the roster, just to add to the name confusion. If they’d managed to also get Junior Felix on the squad, the team could have really been something special.
