Jose Canseco Shows ‘Joes’ It’s Hard To Be Average

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Earlier this year, former major league slugger Jose Canseco tried to resurrect his career as a minor league knuckleball pitcher.

Now he wants to show average Joes just how hard it is to be just average.

Canseco is one of elite athletes appearing this season on Pros Vs. Joes, where aspiring athletes compete against former pros to see if they measure up.

Canseco is excited about participating because it allows the Joes and viewers to see “what it takes to be even average” at the major league level.

As he puts it, “A lot of it is mental. A guy who is good in the backyard will suddenly have to deal with the adrenalin, the stress and the pressure.”

The second season of Pros Vs. Joes debuts January 25 on Spike TV.
