The baseball cap Jose Canseco was wearing when a fly ball bounced off his head for a home run in 1993 has attracted a bid of $3,250 at Heritage Auctions. Canseco's monthly pay likely will be somewhat less than that with his new minor league team.

The 47-year-old former AL MVP, apparently desperate to get in somebody's lineup, has signed with the Worcester Tornadoes. The Massachusetts team is a member of the Canadian-American Association of Professional Baseball, an independent league that has no MLB affiliation.

The league's Wikipedia page says most players earn $2,000-$3,000 a month, and that the season lasts 92-96 games.

But Canseco will be on an MLB field today. He tweeted that he's attending the 100th anniversary celebration at Fenway Park.
