Canseco to play again: Conseco says he’s going to play for the Fort Worth Cats. 

Canseco, who is now 48, had a run in Major League Baseball through 2001. Since he left the league he has played for the Independent Baseball League, and signed into the United League, which the Cats are part of, in 2010, according to the Fort Worth Weekly. His twin brother Ozzie coaches the team.

The league’s president and co-owner of the Cats Byron Pierce said in a statement that “We are excited to have him back in Texas and especially Fort Worth, where he has many fond memories of his time with the Texas Rangers.”

Canseco said in a statement that he can’t wait to work with the younger players. “I am excited to come to Fort Worth and mentor the young ballplayers,” he said. “I love Dallas/Fort Worth and I can’t wait to go up against Ozzie.”

Canseco’s career includes playing for the Rangers in the early ’90s.
