- This article is about the character. For the real life baseball player, see José Canseco.
José Canseco is a former baseball player. He was hired at the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant to play in its softball team. He couldn't play in the last game because he came across a house fire, and rushed in to save a woman's baby who sent him in to save her cat, then her player piano. Saving all those objects took a lot of time, and Canseco didn't make it to the game.
