Legendary slugger and possible juicer Mark McGwire moved on from his hitting coach duties with the St. Louis Cardinals in November to fill the same position on the coaching staff of the Los Angeles Dodgers. And when you head West out to La La Land and its hippy dippy environs, even typically mundane events such as an autograph signing session can get weird in a hurry. On Monday, we regaled you with the tale of how Milwaukee Brewers closer John Axford signed a woman’s pregnant belly. Now we have Mark McGwire gladly signing some dude’s prosthetic leg during Dodgers FanFest 2013. McGwire does not appear put off nor does he seem he creeped out by the unique autograph request. In fact, he appears more than happy to accomodate the prosthetic leg, handing it back to the gentlemen like it was no biggie, as if it likely was not just attached to the guy’s half-leg mere moments earlier. That’s Mark McGwire for ya. Unflappable. Whether at the plate, shooting up steroids (allegedly) or signing some guy’s prosthetic leg, this guy remains in the moment, focuses and stays the course. But more about that prosthetic leg. Pretty fancy, and rocking a New Balance sneaker to boot. But how did the guy end up with it? What horrible tragedy befell this man that resulted in him losing part of his leg? Do you want to know the terrifying truth, or do you want to see Mark McGwire sock a few dingers? Thought so.
