I truly believe if he hadn’t hurt his hip he would have been the first person ever and only forever that would be in the HoF for 2 major sports.
He was that good.
Sharing the time with two he wouldn’t have reached the necessary “counting stats” but his greatness level I could see it. Especially football. In baseball he would do the craziest in air full out dives and just destroy his shoulder and stuff. Football would only get 8-9 games

This is not a long throw but the ball appears to keep accelerating StatCast please
His first career HR? At the time was longest HR in stadium history (20+ years)…. 475 ft
His first AB after HIP REPLACEMENT…..a HR (oppo)
His first all-star swing…..the 3rd longest HR in all-star game history

I’ve read he has the fastest timed run to 1B still. But it was unofficial and before they had metrics to actually time
….and from the right side
These videos suck but it’s like what he did fooled everyone….fooled one of fastest guys in the league, the camera man and even messed up the umpires.
Another highlight where he defies “timing” of the game

First career hit…off Steve Carlton and his 321 wins
Hits a hard grounder and 2nd baseman goes two steps towards RF line and Bo beats it out by a MILE, the timing of this doesn’t calculate at all with the game of baseball. A fast guy hits this and you are thinking bang bang, just out…this isn’t remotely close

60 years old today
Very happy that I was a near perfect age to enjoy what he did in 2 sports.
This was 35 years ago today….watched it as it was happening and it didn’t look like real speed, and then the tunnel exit.
Favorite Bo highlight? Story/legend?

Huh, Jon Kitna's kid is a creepy pedo-freak.
Geesh. Just watched him come in for a few plays last week.

I'm destined for a long string of 5s and 6s.
I did that word this morning and my first thought was “no 2’s today!”
Then you in your Freeman McNeil jersey get lucky
