Pic: Irish man in Toronto gets baseball star to pose with Kerry jersey

After a tough start to his week, Jose Reyes’ is now being targeted for an appearance as a Kerry footballer.

If the name Jose Reyes rings a bell it might be because you saw the video we posted earlier this week when he was nailed right in the man zone by a baseball. The thoughts and prayers of every man in JOE Towers went out to the Toronto Blue Jays man.

So we are very pleased to report that he has recovered and appears to be in great form, if this picture from JOE reader Robert Wallace is anything to go by.

Robert, a Lixnaw native now living in Toronto, attended a Blue Jays game on Wednesday night with his girlfriend, who happened to be wearing a Kerry hoodie.

Robert managed to get Reyes’ attention and took this snap of one of the best players in the Major Leagues with the famous Kerry crest.

We can now add baseball to the NFL, the Masters,  the World Snooker Championship and the Canadian Grand Prix as sporting events where Kerry GAA clothing has popped up.

Robert reckons he can get Reyes to tog out for the Kingdom next year but with a salary of $10million, that might just push the limits of the Kerry County Board.

Nice work Robert
