This guy is a class act. Great work ethic, focused, and has talent. Incredible work out regimine during the offseason. Thrilled to have him as part of the Reds Organization.
the houston chronicle did an article a while back, on bubba boxing in the off-season. don't know if it's archived.
he is who he is, all year long. focused, balanced and above all a man of his word.

hey, reds fans.
all of houston is proud of this young man.
a star in high school (bellaire is tucked away in the heart of houston)and @ rice university (some say the harvard of the south) he has a work ethic to complement his natural talents. even lsu fans were loving his outfield play in the college world series.
houstonians hope he gets the look he deserves @ spring training. and quite a few of us are now reds fans, so treat him well :) bubba will be great for your team. congrats on a great acquisition!

Mr. Crosby is a lefty, batting and throwing.

How about some new photos? Enough with the Yankees pics. Onward to bigger and better things! ;)

Wow, is that post really from Bubba?

He was always a fan favorite here in New York - ever since he started his Yankee career by hitting home runs in his first two games in pinstripes.

And yes, he's always been a true class act. I hope the Reds give him the chance the Yankees never really did. He deserves it, if anyone does.
