Whither B.J. Weed
B.J. Weed with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes in 2005.
His was a name not easily forgotten.
Someone on the Angels fan message board recently asked me the whereabouts of B.J. Weed, a utility infielder in the Angels’ minor leagues in the mid-2000s.
Weed was released during his 2005 season with Rancho Cucamonga. He went on to play in independent ball through 2008, never playing above Advanced Class-A.
A quick Google search revealed that B.J. has capitalized on his unusual name.
Click here to check out BJWeed.com, a web site where he’s selling T-shirts that bear his unusual name.
On the home page, it states:
Who is BJ Weed?
You may be thinking to yourself, “Where did this name come from and is this a real name?” This name is actually real. After being abused and recognized for having such a standout name, I decided to start a clothing company based upon my name. I was born and raised in New York and have traveled ever since due to a minor league career in baseball. Since my career has ended, I have decided to travel down a different road and into the business world. So check out the various items and styles throughout the site and grab yourself a quality product with a unique design.
The site has T-shirts for both men and women.
It’s a living.
