Jose Cano played two seconds in the majors. Well, not exactly but he only played in six games and made three starts for the Houston Astros. Jose's favorite player was Jackie Robinson and he named his son after him.

Robinson Cano is turning into one of the best players in baseball (let's just not mention his 2012 playoff performance) and has one of the sweetest swings you'll ever see. He makes the game look easy and is often criticized for not hustling. He's also becoming a great second baseman and will probably be handed the keys to the Yankees franchise once Jeter hangs it up. His father pitched to and helped him win the 2011 Home Run Derby. Team work FTW.
