Even during the Super Bowl, baseball junkies find a way to think about our national past time. That past time, of course, is baseball. So on the day of the big game, it is only appropriate to recall some of the guys who have played baseball and football.
So before you order the pizzas and call your bookie, take a few moments to recall some of the guys that tried to make it on the diamond and the gridiron.
Elway played in five Super Bowls for the Broncos, winning two in and Elway played in the Pro Bowl nine times altogether.
The Yankees drafted Elway in in the second round. He played 42 games for the Oneonta Yankees of the Class A.
There he batted.
His 25 RBI led the team. But that early promise yielded to the NFL in , when the Baltimore Colts made him the first pick in the draft and then traded him to Denver. Arguably the most famous two-sport star is Bo Jackson. Although the Yankees drafted him in , he chose to play football and baseball at Auburn.
Perhaps the high point of his baseball career came in That was the game that he made an outstanding catch to rob Pedro Guerrero , and then blasted a foot home run off of Rick Reusschel.
The other was Willie Mays. If flash is the measurement, no one takes a back seat to Deion Sanders. Known as Prime Time or Neon Deion, depending on who you talk to, Sanders was never at a loss for words.
He was an eight time pro bowler and won the defensive player of the year award twice. He was also a two-time Super Bowl champion.
Sanders was never the baseball star he was on the gridiron. Mandatory Credit: Getty Images But in baseball his light was not so bright. The New York Yankees drafted him in round 30 of the draft.
Perhaps the high light, or low light, of his short stay with the Yankees came in As he stepped up to the plate against the White Sox he grinned and drew a dollar sign in the dirt. He then produced a weak pop up. But instead of running to first base, he trotted back to the dug out.
Hardly the action of a man who should wear a Yankees uniform. Enjoy the game.
You can order the pizzas now.
