Bubba's baseball team wins award for excellence

RSS

In addition to being a two-time major champion and a Ryder Cup vice captain, the latter apparently outweighing the former, Bubba Watson is also a candy store owner, a car dealership partner, an aspiring politician, and the part-owner of a Double-A baseball team: The Pensacola Blue Wahoos.

Actually, make that the award-winning(!) Pensacola Blue Wahoos.

Watson's team was honored on Monday at baseball's winter meetings with Baseball America's Bob Freitas Award, given annually for organizational excellence. (Last year, the award went to the Richmond Flying Squirrels, which we bring up as an excuse to link to their logo

Watson spent Monday roaming around the meetings in Maryland doing some media.

You can watch this Facebook Live interview in which Watson explains his lifelong passion for baseball and how he got involved with the team. At one point, he starts a sentence with, "One day, after I won the Masters ... ," which must be nice.
