Bo Jackson SpeakerFormer MLB star Bo Jackson has joined the Chicago White Sox in spring training to provide guidance to both younger and veteran players alike. Widely regarded as one of the greatest athletes to ever live, Jackson is the only athlete to have ever earned All-Star selections in two sports (NFL and MLB), and has a lot to offer young players in terms of dealing with both the everyday grind of being a professional athlete and dealing with the fame that comes with it.

The light hearted Jackson, who has resided quietly in Chicago for the last 23 years, is former teammates with current White Sox manager Robin Ventura and joked about he and Ventura’s age during an interview at the White Sox spring training complex.

“We’re old teammates,” Jackson said. “I’m a little bit older than Robin, but because Robin’s the manager, Robin looks a little bit older than me.”

As to what role Jackson is playing in spring training, Jackson said his job for the week was “to walk around and mess with people.” However, what he’s really been doing is acting as a roving instructor, interacting with the younger players in Glendale. As for what it’s been like to be down in sunny Arizona, Jackson said, “Anything is fun when you’re not in Chicago shoveling snow. So, yes, it is a fun week.”

After Jackson won the Heisman trophy scoring touchdowns for the Auburn Tigers in 1985 he became a star in both the NFL and the MLB. From 1987 to 1990 he balanced both sports and earned his reputation as one of the world’s most elite athletes. Though he now lives a quiet life in Chicago, in 1989 and 1990 Jackson’s name became known to sports fans around the world through the “Bo Knows” advertising campaign, a series of advertisements by NIke. No matter how long ago it was that Bo last stepped foot on an NFL or MLB field, the reach of his accomplishments, work ethic, determination, and commitment to excellence still motivates and inspires young athletes today.
