Mitch Mustain has somewhat shocked the football and baseball worlds by signing a contract to play...baseball for the Chicago White Sox. A former highly touted football prospect, Mustain also played high school baseball, but opted to focus solely on football in college.
With Mustain's decision to play the national pastime, I have decided to compile a list of five notable football players who also played baseball.
A couple notes. Those who were drafted to play baseball but decided not to sign (e.g., Jake Locker, Toby Gerhart, Golden Tate) will not be listed. Those who played minor league ball who later returned to football will also not be mentioned.
