With today being Christmas Eve, I thought it’d be a good time to post a Christmas related baseball entry. I recieved the below answers last month, but wanted to wait until today (and tomorrow) to post them. Below is part one of the answers. I recieved SO many replies that I didn’t want to try and cram them all in into one entry.
I asked MLB players (and some minor leaguers) what the best present they ever recieved for Christmas was. I recieved some well thought out answers, and some, well, not so much. I hope you enjoy:
My two front teeth.
A Pizzaz pizza cooker. Thing makes the perfect pizza out of frozen pizza!
My two front teeth fixed. Haha.
Good question. I’ve gotten too many good ones over the years. Hard to pick a favorite!
I was ten and got a surfboard! Awesome.
Best Christmas present ever is a tough one. But I’ll go with getting Nintendo when it first came out in 1985.
Car. ’94 rolla 100,000 miles with house speakers in the back.
I got a stuffed animal when I was 3 that I take everywhere. That’s at the top. I went skydiving last year which was awesome. Those two jump out but I’m sure I’ve gotten some really good ones I’m not thinking of.
That’s a tough question. Gonna say my Titleist AP2 clubs. 🙂
I’ve had a lot of good ones but the present I use the most is a fancy coffee maker. I drink coffee every morning.
Nothing. I loved it.
Tough one. When I turned 12 “Santa” got me a Go-Ped. Little motorized scooter.
Ultimate Warrior WWF Wrestling Buddy. Still gets bodyslammed.
I don’t know. I’ve always been spoiled. Too many.
Probably a go kart I got back in the day.
Spending time with family. Oh and “Penny” Hardaway Shoes back in the day!
I got an old school big foot that I drove into the ground! Blue with a foot print gas peddle. So sick.
#monstertruckswag But probably my favorite thing around the house during Christmas time would have to be my Purple Ninja Turtle stocking. Only stocking I can remember having. #oldschool
My first bike. A 10 speed!
Field goal post my dad made out of pvc pipe. Not full size. Probably 10 ft wide. I was 8.
A red Ryder bb gun, and no I didn’t shoot my eye out.
Pobably my first PS2. Very hard to come by that year and my parents played it down very well.
An Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle!
Last year having the suite at the magic game vs. boston celtics and my whole fam being there compliments of my bro and myself.
I was 8 and got a 30 .06.
The best christmas present was one I never received. I asked for 10 years in a row for a 1995 A-Rod Starting Lineup.
Part two will be posted tomorrow. (Sometime.)
