According to Bubba Watson, his father wanted him to become a professional baseball player. Of course, Watson stuck to golf, which in turn has turned him into a part owner of a baseball team. 

Watson took to Twitter on Monday to announce that he is now a part owner of the Pensacola Blue Wahoos, the AA affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds. 






Watson has been involed with the team before recently buying a share. Last August, he reportedly took batting practice at the stadium during a trip to his home. 

Watson grew up in Bagdad, Florida, which is about 20 miles from where the Blue Wahoos play their home games. 

It's been a busy week for Watson. Last week, he sold a car for $410,000 at a charity auction. He is also scheduled to make a few appearances at the PGA Show in Orlando, starting on Wednesday.
