Happy Birthday Deion Sanders!!!
Deion Sanders turns 45 years old today.
The guy that they called ‘Prime Time’ was a joy to watch. And while he was ultimately a better professional football player than baseball player, Deion was still entertaining nonetheless.
With a major league career that lasted 9 seasons, Deion’s career was based on his greatest attribute – Speed!
Sanders collected 159 stolen bases during his playing days. Usually hitting at the top of the line-up, his skills allowed for him to score 308 runs in 641 games.
A member of the Braves, Reds, Yankees, and Giants, Deion had the charisma and flare to excite crowds and bring people to the ballpark. And if memory serves me properly, he was also a good football player too.
Happy Birthday ‘Prime Time’!!! And congratulations on your Pro Football Hall of Fame induction too!
