What does Juan Berenguer stand for?

Jelly doughnuts, and lots of them.
Undying faith in Christ...
And chicken fried steak.
Never had much use for haircuts.

Ballcap sweat is immense — and this is just a photo shoot.
Eerie resemblance to Machete.
Round mound of not covering first base.
Eventually played for pretty much every team in the majors.
Nose hair: The only category in which he led the league.
Gazing off into distance gives him a look of wisdom ...
Until you realize he's just looking to see if the hot dog guy's working yet.
Earned the nickname "The Panamanian Paunch."
Retired in 1993, but his mustache kept playing till '99.
