Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Baseball and football are very different games. In a way, both of them are easy. Football is easy if you're crazy as hell. Baseball is easy if you've got patience. They'd both be easier for me if I were a little more crazy and a little more patient." - Bo Jackson in 300 Pounds of Attitude: The Wildest Stories and Craziest Characters the NFL Has Ever Seen (Jonathan Rand, Lyons Press Publishing, 09/01/2007, Page 101)

Bo Jackson, while playing college football at Auburn University where he was an exceptionally powerful running back with truly incredible speed, won the 1985 Heisman Trophy, annually awarded to the most outstanding collegiate football player in the United States. When he made his Major League debut on September 2, 1986 , Bo became the second Heisman Trophy recipient to play Major League Baseball - Vic Janowicz was the first.


Bo Jackson All-Star Game MVP | 1989 All-Star Game | MLB Properties, Inc.
Did you know that when Bo Jackson played in the 1989 All-Star Game , he led off the bottom of the first inning, in his first All-Star at-bat, with a mammoth home run (450 feet), making him the first Kansas City Royals player to homer in his first All-Star at-bat? [ All-Star Game Home Runs ]

Did you know that Bo Jackson also ended up winning the All Star Game Most Valuable Player Award during the 1989 Midsummer Classic , the first Kansas City Royals player to receive the honor. Due in part to his home run, his fielding (saved two runs on a nice catch), and his baserunning (beating out a double play ball as well as stealing a base). After he stole the bag, the radio announcer mentioned he was only the second All-Star , behind Willie Mays , to hit a home run and steal a base in the same Midsummer Classic .

When Bo Jackson hit three home runs in a game on July 17, 1990 , he wasn't the first Royals slugger with three in a game, but he was their right-handed hitter in the "club", formerly occupied by these three lefties: John Mayberry ( July 1, 1975 & June 1, 1977 ), Tony Solaita ( September 7, 1975 ), and George Brett ( July 22, 1979 & April 20, 1983 ).
