Bo Jackson turns 47 years old today.
Vincent Edward Jackson was one of the most exciting players to debut in major league baseball during the 1980′s. A 2-sport athlete that built a strong following at the University of Auburn, Jackson was a star before he made his professional debut.
And although his career was cut short due to a football injury sustained while playing in the NFL, Bo Jackson offered us some incredible highlights while in the big leagues. An All-star during the 1989 season, Bo was wildly popular for his ability to crush home runs(141 in 8 seasons), chase down everything in the outfield, and his breaking of bats.
Happy Birthday Bo!!! And thanks for the memories that will last a lifetime!!!
