MLB and NBA Players by Baseball Almanac
Many athletes played more than one sport in high school and college, but then chose one over the other when it came time to choosing a career path. They worked hard at that sport and tried to make it a career. Many don’t make it and must put their mind to something else.
It takes hard work and determination to go pro and a little bit of luck to make it to the big leagues. That’s why so many athletes are only able to play one sport professionally.
So if you think that playing one pro sport would be difficult, try wrapping your mind around playing two! Below you will find a complete list of the athletes who were able to make it to the show in both the National Basketball Association (NBA) and Major League Baseball (MLB).
