47-year old Bo Jackson was a freak of nature for a while as he was a good baseball player with the Royals and an outstanding running back with the Raiders… the same time. Eventually, though his body gave out in 1990 when he took a hit on the hip against the Cincinnati Bengals. He wound up needing a hip replacement. He fought his way back to the majors, but he never played football again. The last season of his major league career was spent with the California Angels and he did a good job for them. He played in 75 games for the Angels in 1993 and he was 56 for 201 (.279 avg, .851 OPS) with 23 runs scored, 13 homers, 43 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Jackson proved that he could overcome all odds to get back to the majors and that is something that has always stuck in my mind about him.
