- Psuedo-intellectual barmaid.
- *Doesn't* work out?
It HASN'T worked out. Isn't he pushing 50 at this point?
DL is the only place I ever even heard of this guy and it seems like I've been hearing about him for years.
Just checked: He's 28? In catcher years, that's 50. His only hope is BP catcher.
- r2 is BP short for bareback porn?
- I love you, R3.
- R2, I pretty much agree with you. Until last year, his career (going from A to AA and AAA and then after that going frequently between AA and AAA Oakland affiliates) was considered pretty much going nowhere with none of his early promise realized. Hence his comment in the article that he would consider the FBI with his buddy if baseball went nowhere for him. He was considered a "could have been" and too old, too big, too slow and lackluster offensively.
However, in 2011, he had an outstanding year at AAA Sacramento. He was unexpectedly called up at the end of the season (late August) when it no longer really mattered for the Oakland A's. He suddenly went from a salary of about $28,000 per year to over $400,000. Granted, his major league career likely won't be long, and he'll go back to making $28,000-$60,000 should he be sent down.
He didn't really distinguish himself his few times playing, especially at a historic debut against the Yankees that was not historic because of him. However, he's apparently well liked by his teammates/management and popular with fans, and Landon Powell, the pudgy former backup catcher who has health problems (a liver condition, I think) was released last week. The other potential backup catcher, Josh Donaldson, is being considered in several roles, so at this late stage/age, Anthony Recker may finally have his chance for a major league career, even if it only lasts a few years at most.
- He could, conceivably, do bareback and bullpen at the same time, no?
- Hand model.
- Thong tester.
- OP, you are in love. You are in just oozing with love for the Tony Recker.
- My Personal Face Warmer and Tongue Cozie
- Recker hit a home run a few minutes ago in a Spring Training game.
And you bet your ass (his ass?) that I'm oozing with love for his butt, buster!
- Does Recker actually qualify as a DL icon if there is only one poster incessantly adding his name to every baseball or ass-related thread?
- He is a DL icon and his butt is discussed on many places other than DL.
- The face isn't bad either.
- OP, do you prefer Anthony, Tony, or Tone the Bone?
- Tone Loc, R15.
- Haha @ Tone Loc.
OP, do you have pictures of Tone Loc Recker all over your bedroom walls and ceiling?
- How about Butt-Ton?
- FBI = Fuckable Buns Incorporated.
He'll make a fortune.
- "FBI = Fuckable Buns Incorporated."
What, precisely, would that business do? What would be its products and/or services?
- It produces pastry r20. What you do with said pastry is your business.
- Pastry and buns? Isn't that reminiscent of santorum? What could be the product because he only has one ass? Molds of his ass? Suggestions, please.
- Recker's jockstrap showing through his baseball pants when he's bending over.
- Another Recker pic.
- FBI = Fat Booty, Indeed
- FBI, indeed.
- Video of Anthony Recker as he "squats and sways". Click on the HD icon for better quality. His reaction as he catches the photographer videotaping his ass is priceless somewhat like "What the fuck, dude?"
- Recker in Japan.
- Another in Japan.
- Better, bigger version.
- Damn, that was HOT, R27. I wonder that that ass smells like after a long game.
- Obviously hand model.
- Interview with Recker. After baseball, he's thinking of opening a restaurant.
With his notable good looks, Anthony Recker's nickname should probably be "Home Recker". But to have a nickname, you have to be somebody and Recker's journey to "being somebody" has taken longer than most. Normally, if you're 28 and still hoping for your "shot in the big leagues," that shot will never come.
Recker, however, appears to be an exception and when I caught up to him at spring training on March 19th, the A's backup catcher talked about his long-and-winding path to the big leagues and gave some insight into who he is -- as well as where he might be headed.
- New video of Recker swinging at bat. Set to high definition.
- Anthony Recker is starting catcher for tonight's Oakland game which is the MLB.tv free game tonight. If one is outside the blackout, one can watch (see link). Great butt shots.
- Smiling, waving.
- Tony's twitter.
- He doesn't tweet. Why not, I wonder?
- does he know he has a great butt?
- R42, do you think he knows and why/why not?
- He probably does know. Do you think he enjoys having his butt played with during sex?
- Visible jockstrap.
- R43, I suspect, although I don't know, that some straight guys with great asses would like to have their asses played with but their girlfriends/wives probably don't indulge. I wonder if Recker' girlfriend strives to please.
- What makes you think Tony is straight, R45?
- He has a longtime girlfriend.
- You'd have to be hung like Chad Hunt just to get the tip in.
- Why do you say that R48?
- Really, long-term girlfriend? How do you know this, R47?
- Facebook profile, R50.
- Oh, thanks, R50. Is she hot, cute, or meh?
- R52, here you go. Sign in and you can link to her profile. She's Taylor Swiftian.
- Here's her profile.
- Here's a nice, but small, pic of Recker's butt in jeans from her Facebook photos
- She's cute, but they are both so far away I can't tell. Thanks for posting, R53/54.
- Anthony is the only hot one in that pic, R55.
- You're welcome. Click on her Photos, and you can see more pics of Recker and her.
- Oh, thank you, R58.
- What do you guys think of his ass in the photo linked at R55?
- Looks awesome. I think the guy behind him wants to touch it. He probably brushed his hand against it.
- Comments? Suggestions?
- Recker apparently has animosity towards a fellow player on the Oakland A's. What do you think the cause is? Do you think the guy made fun of his ass or otherwise made a comment about it? What sort of comment or action could have caused such offense?
- Recker relaxing in the team clubhouse.
- This Orioles player was checking out Recker's ass for a long time at yesterday's game. Is he on the down low?
- Video of Recker at bat.
- Just posted on the Anthony Recker's butt Facebook group.
- He's about to fly away.
- From a baseball board: "I bet Recker just gazes into a pitchers eyes so that his beauty fools him into giving him a pitch to hit."
- Maybe this deserves its own thread: "Oakland A's Pitcher Brandon McCarthy Outraged Over 'Kiss Cam' Homophobia"
Brandon McCarthy, pitcher for the Oakland A's, has had it with the cheap laughs the "Kiss Cams" at baseball stadiums regularly go for, and has taken to Twitter to demand an end to the homophobia.
"They put two guys on the 'Kiss Cam' tonight. What hilarity!! (by hilarity I mean offensive homophobia). Enough with this stupid trend."
"I know that isn't the intention, but the implication is that two guys kissing is funny. That's offensive to gay males."
"so that's why they should stop doing it. Plus, it's cheap shitty comedy so it sucks on that level as well."
"Just hate how often that 'gimmick' is used when the intentions aren't great."
Given that Brandon has nearly 30,000 followers on Twitter, he did face some resistance with his "Kiss Cam" campaign.
"A lot of people who aren't 'homophobic' still think its disgusting for men to kiss. #nothingwrongwiththat," wrote Andrew Smalley, to which Brandon replied: "which is a personal choice and that's fine. However, the laughing at it as it's broadcast to a stadium is different."
Wow, Brandon, thanks! We've always had a thing for pitchers!
One of the commenters wrote about Anthony Recker: "Yes, I know that. And I'm guessing the implication is that, because he's a 'top' (ie, the traditionally masculine role), he has more validity than if he were a 'bottom' (ie, the traditionally feminine role). So, to put back into baseball terms, if Anthony Recker had said this, it wouldn't be as persuasive...?"
I don't understand that comment about Recker. Would someone please clarify?
- R65, you know we black guys love big asses, and Recker's ass is built just like a big ass ghetto booty black woman's.
- R71, are you saying that Recker has the DL trademarked "womanly butt"? What about it makes it look that way?
- Its round, shapely protuberant quality.
- Does his ass like a woman's ass?
- Sorry, I meant to ask, "Does his ass look like a woman's ass?"
- Also, why would a gay man or straight man be attracted to a man with a woman's ass like the baseball player at R65?
- Video of him playing. Part of it in slow motion.
- Butt side.
- Looking sad.
- Another side.
- Somewhat distant from the front.
- Walking away.
- I just wanna know what the fuck that ass smells like after a long, hard game. I'd also want to see it buck naked about 2 inches from my face.
- R84, I take it you're a gay guy. Why are you attracted to a guy with a woman's ass?
- Butt from behind. Swinging.
- He should have his ass bronzed, or at least made into one of those silicone-type realistic sex toys.
- Handsome face shot.
- Sepia-toned Recker in drag.
- Pretty in pink.
- Caption: "he must have been thinking about how big his butt and how it gets in the way of everything."
- Anthony Recker is no longer a major league player. He has been sent back to the minor leagues (AAA Sacramento). He was a major league player for less than four months not counting the off season and spring training. He goes from $480,000 a year to less than $30,000 (somewhere in the mid 20s I think).
- Recker's ass is seen in its full roundness in this Youtube video from about 0:30 to 0:44. Put it in HD 1080 for a better view. He's to the right of the hitter in the dugout.
- r93, I hope he put some of the money aside. Or maybe I hope he didn't, so he can do porn vids as a bossy bottom.
- He could so easily turn to acting and get the cop role.
He'd be the big hunky cop who'd be good with kids who have angry parents.
- Click to enlarge.
- Swinging, bent over, butt from the side.
- That ass is so hot...
- "'It’s always fun learning different positions,' Recker said."
Quote from linked article.
- Oops. Put the link in the wrong place.
- New pics
- Just a lot of ass
- Thanks for those great pics, R102-105. Here's another recent one.
- There's a mini firestorm on Twitter right now regarding Recker's girlfriend bitching about another catcher being promoted to the Oakland A's instead of Recker. She implied that Recker works so hard and that others are lazy. One guy wrote something to the effect that she is only with him "for the ass".
- [quote]she is only with him "for the ass"
LOL. And the ironic thing is, she probably hasn't a clue of what to do with it.
I'll bet all that squatting he does just adds to the heft of that shapely, meaty backside of his.
- Also from Twitter: "My grandma just told me that Anthony recker on the river cats has the cutest butt"
- He should dedicate his life to finding the creepy queen who obsesses over the size of his buttocks on DL and bring Miss Thing to JUSTICE!
- Visible jock strap.
- Recker's tagging someone out.
- Recker's ass from behind swinging.
- An illustration of Anthony Recker and his ass by Christian Cimoroni.
- Recker yoga stretch.
- Homoerotic Recker quotes:
"'He definitely has amazing stuff,' Recker said of Straily. 'You never feel like you're behind with him. Even when you fall behind it doesn't matter because he hits the spots.'"
"'As soon as that happened I turned around and (Recker) was on the mound, just standing there,' Straily said. 'He wasn't upset that I shook him...'"
- I would absolutely inhale his ass scent for hours after he came in from a game.
My God, I think it would be the highlight of my entire life.
- He's pretty much failed as a baseball player so what's he to do?
- See the player third from the left looking at Recker's ass.
- The ball boy in the middle looks like he's checking out Anthony Recker.
- "The Oakland A’s reinstated left-handed pitcher Brett Anderson from the 60-day disabled list and optioned right-handed pitcher Dan Straily to Triple-A Sacramento, the club announced today. To clear a spot on the 40-man roster, the A’s designated catcher Anthony Recker for assignment."
Or as someone on Twitter wrote, "RIP Anthony Recker's 40-man spot. One of my favorite spring training memories is watching women swoon over you in the on-deck circle."
- There is a possibility he may go to another team or that his baseball career, at least at near a major league level, may be over.

Anthony Recker is named on this list of "25 backsides that make us glad that our national pastime is almost back."
- This just pisses me off. What would that chick do with that work of art ass? I mean really! It's like giving a calculus book to a monkey.
Asses like that come along only once in a great while, and he needs to put it where it does the most good.
After baseball, he has two choices. To go on a strict diet an maintain that body, or what I fear will happen, he will blow up like a tank. He has the body that would take 75 pounds additionally with no problem.
- His girlfriend definitely can't know what to do with the gloriously humongous heinie!
- Recker. Adorable with dog.
- I know the Twins are irrelevant right now - but Mauer should really be on the list at the link at R146
