Good morning, Sports fans!   Davey Mac back with another Sports Report for ya where we’re concentrating on the big three: MLB, NBA, and the NFL.   But first!

It was 34 years ago (yesterday) that Bo Jackson signed a contract to play for the Kansas City Royals…a short time after he won the Heisman Trophy (when attending Auburn) for being the best player in College Football!

Jackson would quickly become one of the most dynamic players in baseball…making the All Star Team in 1989…and putting on a ton of highlights.   He won the All Star Game MVP in that same year.   Bo had power, speed, a great arm, and could get to any ball.





But, that’s not all.   Bo then signed with the Raiders in the NFL where, in 1989, he averaged 5.5 yards as a stellar running back and made the Pro Bowl (in 1990).   Totally amazing.
