Bo Jackson....baseball

I wish I had been able to see him play. I was 4 when he retired from football in 1990 and obviously don’t remember much of what I saw of him on the diamond.

You missed him break a bat over his knee.

From his first career hit to returning on a hip replacement....he just did stuff you had never seen before and really not since on many.

They don’t even seem believable. His throws, Lord.

YouTube of first hit....off of a 321 game winner, near HR foul oppo, foul HR to LF the camera couldn’t even come close to following and then hit a two hopper to second that looks like a bang bang play with the timing of the game...hope lol. Good commentary too

If I ever want to feel good about the Browns I just google "Metcalf 2 punt return TD's against Pittsburgh."

112 career OPS+ puts him a notch above average. Career .250 hitter and a 4.5/1 K/BB ratio

 

Now his % of head shaking unbelievable highlights per opportunity may be unmatched
