WATN: Why Yes, That is Sal Fasano with a Lugnuts Jersey On

SalFasano.Lugnuts It’s been a while since we checked in on The700Level favorite Sal Fasano, so we were pleased to stumble across this piece about Sal managing the Lansing Lugnuts, a low Class-A team in the Toronto Blue Jays organization.

Not surprisingly, Sal is looked upon quite fondly by his young players who aspire to play in the Bigs someday just like their skipper once did. The article starts off by updating us on the medical issues his son Santo was facing and notes that the little guy is doing just fine. “You can’t even tell [he had the surgery],” Fasano said with a smile. “He’s a pistol.”

Just like his dad.

Perhaps my favorite anecdote from the story: One of Sal’s boys is named Enzo. That’s badass.
