Your 2012 Transgender All-Stars!

An encore of an earlier blog, in honor of the break.  Enjoy!– JFB

Your 2012 Transgender All-Stars will play the Wingnuts in the summer classic tonight.  Some familiar fan favorites, and some newcomers in this year’s roster.  Also:  Susan “Wild Thing” Stanton, formerly catcher, appears to have sent down to the minors.

1. Janet Mock

The Kahuna from Hawai’i is slotted into the lead-off position. All bets are on the Mockster to wind up with Rookie of the Year.

MaraKeisling 2. Mara Kiesling

Leading the league in earned runs, the big left hander is not renowned for speed.  In recent years she has had the extra burden of carrying a small dog, “Puffington” as she rounds the bases.

3. Susan Stryker

The shortstop from Arizona.   The professor in the three-hole should advance Keisling and the Mockster to scoring position.  Watch for Strykes from the Strykemeister.

rose 4. Donna Rose

Donna “The Refrigerator” Rose has occupied the cleanup spot since becoming a free agent in 2006.  The controversy surrounding her decision not to renew her contract with the Washington Humans has made her a crowd favorite.

St-Pierre 5. Ethan St. Pierre (“E-Saint”)

Renowned for his RBIs,  St. Pierre has a history of sacrifices.  Often he can be seen swinging with a microphone instead of a bat.

JamisonGreen 6. Jamieson Green (a.k.a. “The Big Unit”)

The sixty-four year old from Oakland is known for his ability to stay in the game.

KateBornstein-header-9-25-08 7. Kate Bornstein (“That’s just Bornstein being Bornstein!”)

The Outlaw was recently removed from the Disabled List and is well known for her offensive skills.

8. Chaz Bono

New to the All-Star lineup this year,  Bono will lead the pre-game Tabloid Derby.  A power hitter, Bono may be intentionally walked if the count is high in hopes of getting a strikeout from Calpernia Addams.


9.Calpernia Adams

Calpernia usually bunts.  Her running ability is exceptional, considering that she slides in heels.

    Can I be the bat girl? I’ll even get a Batgirl black plastic suit.

    Edward had been my teacher at Johns Hopkins in the winter of 1986. He visited Colby in fall, 2007. As we took our leave of each other, he kissed me on both cheeks and said, "We have done well. You and I."

    Jack was my professor at JHU when I did my thesis, back in the day. After many years, I can now confidently say I finally understand his definition of plot. Which is, of course, "the perturbation of an unstable homeostatic system and its catastrophic restoration to a new and complexified equilibrium."
