- This article is about the character. For the guest star, 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 piano player. Saving all those objects took a lot of time, and Canseco didn't make it the game.
He was one of the celebrities Homer saw going out of a laundrette.
