The Baseball Thread!!!

It was really the only thing negative I have ever known about MJ.  I do respect him overall as a real decent person and one of the best ever to play NBA.  He was just being an arrogant rich guy at the time trying to bust into MLB on his fame.   Any real baseball fan knew it was a sideshow.  He is indeed a very good golfer and embarrassing kids for his entertainment trying to bust into the MLB working for salaries less than I even made then.  Mike really did tell him let's do 10 at bats and see where it lands.  He knew any MLB pitcher could make that bet against Ted Williams and have a decent chance of breaking even.  MJ just needed to be humbled that day.      `
