Michael Rand started RandBall with hopes that he could convince the world to love jumpsuits as much as he does. So far, he's only succeeded in using the word "redacted" a lot. He welcomes suggestions, news tips, links of pure genius, and pictures of pets in Halloween costumes here, though he already knows he will regret that last part.

Posted by: Michael Rand under Professional baseball Updated: June 16, 2014 - 4:22 PM

Sometimes you just have to sit back, relax and let the press release do the work (though we did add our own bold for emphasis.

Please come over and join the World Cup live blog if you are so inclined. And if you want to attend the Canseco event Tuesday evening, let us know and a guest post could be yours!

Celebrity Slugger Jose Canseco begins his “Home Run Challenge” tour with a public appearance at Fan HQ in the Ridgedale Center mall on Tuesday, June 17th, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m..  Jose will meet with fans, pose for photos and sign autographs.

After the stop at Fan HQ, Jose Canseco’s Home Run Challenge Tour will run for over two months as he visits 17 cities in Canada and the U.S. covering 16,500 miles in 10 weeks in the CansecoMobile – a 40-foot custom RV.  The former Major League Baseball Most Valuable Player, Rookie of the Year, and World Series champ will be accompanied on the tour by his four dogs and three tortoises

Canseco will appear at minor league ballparks and charity events challenging local sluggers as he attempts to break the official world record longest softball home run of 510 feet by Bruce Meade and Babe Ruth’s longest baseball home run of 570 feet.  “This will be fun for the fans and kids,” said Canseco.  “I’m going for 600 feet for both records to really raise the bar.”
