The Flyin’ Hawaiian. Says a lot doesn’t it? Besides being just a darn cool nickname, it has to be earned somehow and flying as an adjective says Shane Victorino does a lot with his legs. Whether it’s chasing down a ball in the gap from his centerfield position, stealing a base, stretching a double into a triple or hustling up the line on a bunt, Victorino has proven himself to be a crucial part of the Philadelphia Phillies defense and a catalyst at the top of the lineup. Get yourself a Shane Victorino jersey, tshirt and memorabilia from FansEdge.com, or pick up some other Philadelphia Phillies apparel and merchandise to prepare for a great day of tailgating and baseball.
Victorino is also known as The Pineapple Express and his success as a former Hawaii state track and field champion in the 100, 200 and 400 meter runs has as much to do with his current monikers as his hustle on the diamond every day. His speed has definitely helped him track down three Gold Glove awards, get him to the All Star Game and, most importantly, help the Phillies win the 2008 World Series. The switch-hitter also has a surprising amount of power given his smaller stature, which hasn’t stopped him from successfully inhabiting the Major Leagues for six seasons.
