Following up the story of CJ Wilson’s path from his Southern California roots all the way to the 2010 World Series, today’s Eastbay Photo of the Week will make fans of the Rangers’ Southpaw happy. Wilson’s Straight Edge lifestyle of abstaining from the use of drugs and alcohol in order to live a healthier lifestyle is not only the subject of some of his tattoos, but also the inspiration behind the “XXX” seen stitched onto both of his player exclusive Wilson baseball gloves.

As the new number one guy in the rotation for the Texas Rangers, CJ Wilson will look to carry the team back to the World Series this coming season. Now that CJ has solidified his place as one of the game’s top starting pitchers, he will aim to better his career high of 15 wins from last season beginning in just a couple of weeks when pitchers and catchers report to spring training.
