Bo Jackson 1989 Donruss Baseball’s Best

While in his prime, Bo Jackson had one of the most powerful swings in the sport of baseball.

From a high and might front-leg kick to his lightning quick wrists – Bo could turn on a pitch as fast as any slugger in the game.  During that same time period, we saw some pretty string swings from guys like Jose Canseco, Eric Davis, George Bell, and Andre Dawson.  Bo could stand toe-to-toe with these guys when he was grooving.

Unfortunately, that kind of power tends to be geared towards fastball hitting only.  And as soon as pitchers figured out that Bo was not able to handle the off-speed stuff as well as the fastballs, they took control.

Bo Jackson struck out 872 times during his 8 years in the major leagues.  His highest tall came in 1989 when he K’ed a league leading 172 times…

Baseball’s Best?  Maybe, maybe not…
