Meet Santana Squid, Ace Pitcher for the Oceans! Santana was born to pitch. As a youth growing up in the warm waters of the Caribbean, he and his friends would while away the days by playing baseball, but none of them excelled as Santana did. He signed with the Oceans right out of high school. After less than a full season in their minor league system, the Oceans old warhorse pitcher Goody Goldfish went down for the season with an injury, and Santana got his chance to pitch in the majors - and he shone. In the years since then, he’s became a mainstay of the Oceans’ line up. Whenever the team has a must-win game, Santana is always on the mound, and he’s never let them down. His best pitch is the 4-tentacle fast ball, but he also throws a wicked curve ball, whose delivery is obscured by the swirling of his tentacles in the water. Santana is a natural born leader, but he generally chooses not to be noticed by the media, a result of his natural reticence…though some attribute it to the way his gray body blends in with the club house paint, helping him avoid scrutiny.
