[Source] - A former prospect for the Toronto Blue Jays, de los Santos has been pursuing a career as a professional golfer for the last 9 years or so. But why would he give up a shot at Major League Baseball for the PGA?
Ah yes, one leg. It turns out that de los Santos lost his left leg in a motorcycle accident when he was just 18, thus ruining his once-promising baseball career. But instead of being a mopey crybaby about it, he did what any inspired, motivated athlete would do – he watched The Legend of Bagger Vance.
I think the highlight of my life as a blogger is reading about this journalist asking Manuel de los Santos why he choose golf over baseball. Um look down bro. Dude has one leg. Lost it in a motorcycle accident. Really limits his range of movement. Just gotta have two legs to make much of a difference in baseball. Like I can think of countless guys that made it to the show with two legs. Countless. But can’t for the life of me come up with anyone who only had one that made it there. It’s borderline essential really.
