Disgraced former major leaguer and racist asshole John Rocker finally made it to Cooperstown. No, not into the Baseball Hall of Fame, but on the sidewalk in front of a store, where he set up a table selling xenophobic t-shirts and a hard night of drinking with him.
And about that raffle:
Hall of Fame weekend brings out a ton of former big leaguers. From Hall of Famers to Pete Rose…it’s a veritable smorgasbord of All-Stars from years past.
This year, however, is a little different. Probably thinking there’s a way to cash in on the glut of Atlanta Braves fans making the trip north…there’s also John Rocker. And, sure, it’d be easy to suspect that Rocker is in town to support his former teammates Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine and skipper Bobby Cox, but, it’s Rocker…and we know that’s not how dude operates.
Rocker (alongside another former Brave Ryan Klesko) was holding down his patch of sidewalk selling books, posing for pictures, signing autographs and, naturally, telling folks to “Speak English”.

I bet they’re lining up for that one, mostly so they can watch him get drunk and spout more racist shit so they can record it and put it on Youtube. Now if only there was a douchebag hall of fame; he’s be a first ballot inductee.
