This Is Juan Berenguer

I had no idea who Juan Berenguer was, had never heard of him, not once, until I saw that, above, at Old Time Family Baseball.

Baseball players come and go. Thousands of them, over a lifetime. That is how I hope you remember Juan Berenguer.

Actually, Berenguer, I’ve discovered, was kind of a big deal. He had a few nicknames: “El Gasolino,” “Senor Smoke,” and “Pancho Villa.” All of them awesome.

Then I found this, about the “Berenguer Boogie”:

I’m not really sure what to say. I’d definitely call what Berenguer’s doing in that video a “boogie,” but I’m really glad it’s no longer 1987. The world was a crazy place back then.
