I'm imagining the Insurance Salesman Dad that is having to follow a Yankees player in uniform and trying to get the kids to find him interesting.
“You see, Jose and I are actually quite alike. He protects the home plate. I protect your home in the event of a fire. It’s the same thing.”
“Who can tell me what the word ‘underwriting’ means? Anyone? Okay, I’ll tell you.”
Don't let this man distract you from the fact that in 1998, The underwriter threw financial risk for a nominal fee, and rates plummeted 16 ft through an an issue of new securities.
I was about to get mad at an imposter, kept reading, and ended up really enjoying this comment.
This reminds me of that wrong number standup bit by Jay Larson on YT, thought of that when I saw plummeted 16ft 😂
The actual history of underwriting is pretty interesting. It has to do with sailors and guaranteeing their family gets some money if they never return from a voyage.
The owner of the ship would write his name under the sailors contract, saying he would pay out if the ship never returned. Underwriting.
This guy insurances!
“Jose has 2.8 career Wins Above Replacement, while I can get you the full replacement value of your household items.”
You know that's a lie lmfao
“I will fight as hard as I can to make sure you *don’t* get 1/4th of the value of your home and possessions.”
“I can get you 2.8% the worth of your destroyed household items.”
The full depreciated value! Electronics are cheaper now! *looks at electronics prices* Well they were cheaper and that's what matters!
> I protect your home in the event of a fire
"But not in the event of mold, floods, [and other shit I'm too poor to know about cuz I cant afford a house]"
I got a decent payout when half the home's electronics got fried by lightning strike. What they don't tell you is they immediately raise rates and you get blacklisted for at least three years so you can't switch insurers.
God damn do I hate corporations so much. That is awful. I'm sorry that happened to you.
I used to be in insurance, not trying to be a shill.
I’m not trying to be a dick or anything, but was there anything else going on with the house at the time? A single claim for something like that shouldn’t have that large of an effect on your insurability. Was the wiring in the house older than expected when they came out to look? Did the adjuster do a full assessment of the property and find new/undisclosed risks? Did you have a low credit score when you bought the insurance or when you were looking to change carriers? Were there any large-scale disasters in your state/region the same year that this took place? Was the stock market down at that time? I know it sounds random but all of those things can be used in settling or adjusting rates following a claim.
It could very well be that it was a company being assholes and not wanting to pay, but the back end of insurance is complicated as fuck and they don’t like going into details about why they do stuff externally since every single incident has different circumstances around it.
“Yeah. Do you know Aaron Judge?”
“Well, no, but I work with some really great people”
“Boo, you suck. Bring back Trevino!”
No but I insured a judge whose son was named Aaron
“We were cellmates together, Andy! You got payback comin'!”
Good thing it’s not Gary Sanchez. You would have a better chance of insurance salesman dad [protecting the plate](https://youtu.be/rAWPlxCQ1cU)
“Cool! So you’re a firefighter??”
“Well, not exactly…”
It's like when a kid brings their hamster for show and tell when you brought a Yu-Gi-Oh card
Yea sucks for the kid with the hamster
yea show me a hamster that can draw three additional cards from your deck and then I'll be impressed
I'll take the Blue Eyes White Dragon over the Brown Eyes Brown Hamster
It was Pot of Greed, which allows me to draw three new hamsters
Can your three hamsters destory... the moon?
Given enough time and conditioning to believe it IS made of cheese... Yes.
Don't be a Kuriboh!!
CRUSH YOUR ENEMIES
GRIND THEM INTO THE DIRT!
Came for this comment
I. drink. your. milkshake.
"Next up is Billy's father! He's a Night security guard for a sugar factory! How exciting!"
"I watch cartoons for eight hours a night, unless I hear a noise, and then I walk around a gigantic building that smells like candy carrying a flashlight to size of your leg."
Know your audience.
I... I'm in.
My mom was a CPA and came for career day to show what she does. She was up against a woman that works with pandas in a zoo, and a lawyer for the Hilton family.
BUT, my mom is creative and killed it with a Monopoly table set, sprinkled in some jokes. All the kids got $3 bills with Elvis on them. Proud moment for my mom :)
Your mom should talk to some pitching scouts because she's the master of spin
Maybe it was Reese Bobby, Semi-Professional Race Car Driver
See, the teacher wants you to go slow, but she's wrong, 'cause it's the fastest who gets paid and it's the fastest who gets laid.
Excuse me. And an amateur tattoo artist.
At my kid’s school, the helicopter pilot always gets the early morning spot, so everyone after that is following a medevac helo landing in the parking lot.
This year it rained though so I got to make fun of his stupid weather prone vehicle to every single first and second grader.
That was literally my thought. I'd tell him to go last 😂
Yeah, suited up catcher in the back of the room wouldn’t be distracting *at all*
My brother was a firefighter and came to one of my elementary school career days with full gear, mask and oxygen tank, etc.
They had him go last to give the other parents a fighting chance.
"Unlike the last guy, who works for the Yankees, I'm employed in an industry that actually *does* stuff for society who people actually like: health insurance."
"Listen kids, terrible things are going to happen to you. If you pay us, we'll give you some money when they do."
Mathematician Dad throws his abacus in the air and storms out knowing he can’t compete with ALLSTAR, PLATINUM GLOVE Trevino
I think Insurance Salesman Dad just doesn't get the invite.
"This big dumb bitch comes walking through the construction site see?..."
Like Billy Crystal in the beginning of City Slickers
Kind of reminds me from The Santa Clause where Charlie brings in his dad as Santa lol
I just said the same thing in the Yankees sub. Great minds think alike.
Platinum glove and a gold heart
Damn, bro, why you downgrading his heart like that?
This is likely the only time I’ll agree with an Astros fan
Would you agree if I said Aaron Boone should've been gone the day of or after our series this year lol
After game 3
Honestly can't believe he survived after the Ortiz/2004 Red sox thing
"Guys, here are videos of all your pets dying. Let's fucking gooo!"
Disagree because it shouldve been sooner
Trevino is from Corpus Christi Texas, practically an Astro.
He grew up a Yankees fan tho
Thats fair, Corpus is pretty meh
Aaron Judge, this is just what it looks like when he hugs a normal sized person
Ah the ole reddit [catcherooo](https://www.reddit.com/r/Unexpected/comments/yxq6n5/phew_close_one/iwui5g9/)
Hold my catcher's gear I'm going in!
Hello future people!
Went through like an hour rabbit hole, never ends.
I’ve not seen a switcheroo in years. It’s glorious.
It’s an old meme, sir, but it checks out.
Hold my framed pitches I’m going in!
This whole hyperlink journey was the best thing i saw tonight. Tysm
It used to be way more commonplace to see the ol' switcheroo on Reddit. Oh how I miss old reddit.
my favorite reddit bit was when somebody would guess the name or word for something and then someone responds by correcting them with an irrelevant but similar looking/sounding word and the next person does the same and the chain keeps going...
Ive been on reddit 10+ years and its the same.
That’s genuinely one of the best parts of Reddit. Continually aggregating new, user-sourced content while simultaneously, incessantly recycling “two broken arms,” “I also choose this guy’s dead wife,” switcheroos, and “that time in nineteen ninety eight when the undertaker threw mankind off hell in a cell, and plummeted sixteen feet through an announcer’s table.”
Awwww fuck. Somebody hold onto the end of this rope, I'm going in
Hello future people
Your dad is not José Trevino
Yes he is
Oh I'll prove it.
This reminds me of the time Henry Cavill’s nephew said his uncle was Superman and his teacher gave him shit about it, so Henry made an appearance.
I mean, his nephew’s honor was called into question!
A fucking hero for his kid
He's even got the eyeblack. But is he also walking around in cleats?
Are you not?
Never know when you need to prove your first to third speed.
Scouts are always watching.
Found Jim Harbaugh.
Yea I thought everybody did that
That's nothing. You shoulda seen the massive wad of dip he was packing.
Lmao it actually does look like he's stuffed his cheek with a pinch or three of redman 😂😂
He can use the cleats for self defense. He's in a school.
“Thank you, Jose. Next, we have Timmy’s dad, who is a manager of a Home Depot. Who has questions for Timmy’s dad?”
WHATS YOUR BATTING AVERAGE MARTIN?
“How many Platinum gloves do you have?”
“Stop! I bet he doesn’t even have a gold glove!”
“Timmy’s dad is a fucking loser, huh?”
“Yeah, can we go back to Jose?”
Both have lumber experience
Aaaaand this is where I'd put a trophy.
#IF I HAD ONE!!!
Jose is awesome. Loved getting to see more of his personality in the All Star game.
Also this bought his kid infinite coolness amongst his fellow kids for like 18 years at least.
His kid is gonna be frolicking and gliding out of that classroom lol. Instant playground cred
Imagine being the poor schmuck who gets up after Jose and has to follow up "I'm an All-Star Platinum Glove winning catcher for the New York Yankees" with "I do data entry for Wells Fargo" 😭
As an Aussie who did data entry (in Sydney) I don't think that's entirely true. If you're in an office it's way better to have a guy in the same office to enter shit in
As if this dude could get any more likable.
Part of me is jealous he’s gone but the other part of me is glad he’s being recognized for being the same dude he’s been for years in Texas.
Yeah, on one hand it kinda hurts to see him getting national attention not in a Rangers uni but it softens the blow to know that wouldn't have happened had he stayed here
Hell, it wouldn’t have happened if Ben Rortvedt had managed to exist.
still convinced he’s a figment of our imagination
Maybe the real Ben Rortvedt was the friends we made along the way
There was a gas leak at Yankees Stadium and that’s why we all think he exists.
As a Yankees fan I can confirm that we all absolutely love him.
He could if he played for literally any other team.
Probably not the Astros
Nah it's not like he was part of the cheating.
Honestly, I don't think it'd hurt him. He might even help make us more likable, kinda like Mancini
It honestly didnt feel like Mancini really played for yall
Even the Astros
Holy smokes that’s awesome.
That’s a great dad.
I love this man so much.
Me too. I’m sad he’s not a Ranger any more.
The kids are going to remember this forever. Like bring this up in college to seem cool. And talk about this when they're 30 and questioning life and remembering the "easy" times. I'm jealous.
I went to elementary school with Rick Burleson’s kid and he did the same thing for us. Showed up in full uniform. Even showed us his cup. Good times.
Wait a minute...
Burleson sure was a lunchpail guy
I got bloodied up by a pitching machine at the batting cages and some washed up ex Met was the owner so he gave me a signed card. I’m not even a Mets fan but that was so cool to me as a kid.
/r/baseball post in 2037: here's a picture of 6 year old me with HOF catcher Jose Trevino when he came to my school
Other parents: “Jesus fucking Christ Jose how are we supposed to compete with this? My kid hates me now.”
Other parents at the back of the class: "How'd you get swept by Houston ya bum!"
The kids too lol
He's from Texas so the other parents might just be Astro fans anyway.
But I bet his kids go to school in NYC
Why’s he hugging Altuve?
Jose Trevino gave me a 100$ tip once. I’m a bartender at a restaurant and he ate at the bar. I had no idea who he was until someone else told me. He was super funny and friendly the whole time. Just and all around great guy.
I also got a 100$ tip from Amir Garret. We get lots of baseball players during season because lots of teams stay at the 4 seasons and we are right across the street.
Hearing that Jose Trevino is an awesome dude is the least surprising thing that I have ever learned
if anything, the yankees have some of the best personalities in baseball, trevino, rizzo, judge, nestor, those are who stand out at least
A Yankee Great!
i was born and raised in new york, but in 2015 and 16 i probably watched more cubs games then yankee games just cause of rizzo, kris byrant, David ross, i just loved that team.
you should have seen my reaction when i found out rizzo was coming to the yankees
Stupid likeable Yankees.
Trevino deserves everything good that happens in his life. He’s a great person.
I love this. I hate the Yankees but love this.
Now, you wait just a gosh darn minute....
It's okay, lots of us hate our own team.
I think that might just be us, brother.
it’s not just you
Ehh I don’t hate the team. I just hate the ownership of the team.
Came here to say this…figured another person already had lol
During the All Star game/break, I saw a interviews with him and Nestor Cortes and they seemed so genuine.
I hope he was the closer. Cause nobody wants to go after this fucking guy.
No pitch com? I DEMAND A REFUND!!!!!
/s just in case
He won me over in the All Star game and this tops it.
trevino showing up at AEW tomorrow night confirmed.
Trevino gonna ruin MJF's night confirmed
“As Jose left the room after a remarkable performance, the other dads booed”
This dude has a heart of gold. My son and his were on the same t ball team and this guy came to our end of the year party, talked to every one like a friend, and signed balls for all of the kids. Total class act!
As cool as this is and I love it, my boring IT ass hates him now. LOL
His son introducing him: “this is my dad Jose Trevino, my second favorite baseball player behind Aaron judge”. 🤣
I'm not crying. Really.
Truly a great person. So glad he’s a yank.
Jose with one of the more memorable ranger post game interviews. - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkMfLAQjmb8
I hope he shows up to AEW Full Gear in his full gear.
Sharpie in-hand too, what a guy.
Common W. Wose Wrevino.
That's my all-star and gold glover!
No wonder George Costanza got blamed for stealing and selling clubhouse equipment....
Fucking Trevino swiped it!!!
That man loves his job and I love that.
Fair play to him, you could imagine a lot of sports people just turning up in their normal clothes, the full commitment from him to make it a little bit more special for all the kids is really special 👏
Jose Trevino is god
Altuve in a Yankees jersey? 👀👀
What a guy, that’s really awesome to see
My friend’s brother pitched in the majors and came in for career day for her elementary school class…all the kids cared about was that he got free sneakers.
They were legit amazed.
Good dad, way to go. I really like this.
This is one of the best things I've seen in a while, thanks for sharing.
This is adorable.
And who’s now the most popular kid in school?
Dear god I fucking love this man
I found [this post](/r/Basebaww/comments/yyxy57/jose_trevino_shows_up_to_career_day_in_full_gear/) in r/basebaww with the same content as the current post.

I knew he was the better defender yet was still sad he won gold glove (/plat glove as well) over my Big Dumper, however I can’t be mad at him because who tf can’t love a guy who goes to his boy’s career day in the full catcher get up?? Hats off to you Jose 🧢
If you haven't heard [his interview on David Cone's podcast](https://open.spotify.com/episode/6ZKVAHxGoSNqDJl1aaWUQ8?si=dDGDMlm-QZKFNwd2aSuBZw&utm_source=copy-link), I strongly recommend it. He's just a great guy.
Weird flex but ok
^(but seriously this is so cool)
My godfather’s father worked for the Mets and my godfather grew up doing odd jobs around the clubhouse and knowing some of players.
My godfather played catcher in high school and the coach chewed him out at one practice. “Who the hell taught you to catch like that?” He replied “Jerry Grote!”, who was the Mets’ All-Star catcher. The coach thought he was being smart and gave him detention. That led to a very awkward phone call between the dad and the coach.
This is a good post. Wholesome moment, and the kids' faces are hidden/censored. Yep that's a +1
