Hey! I'm back with another article covering the best multi-sport athletes of all time. This article will cover the players who could tear it up on the diamond as well as other fields and, hey, I'll even put some players that could tear it up on other fields besides the ice and on the tee.


Bo Jackson- He could tear it up on the diamond and on the gridiron.

Carl Crawford- He was offered scholarships to colleges that wanted him on their football and basketball team.

Jackie Robinson- He broke the color barrier for baseball, but he also played football, basketball, and track before deciding on baseball.

Brian Jordan- You may know him as an All-Star while with the Atlanta Braves, but that was after he played with the NFL's Atlanta Falcons. He had 5 picks during his carrer!

Tony Gwynn- He was drafted to the San Diego Padres, but he was also drafted to the former San Diego Clippers the same day! If you don't know, he chose baseball.

Mark Hendrickson- He may pitch on the mound but he can tear it up on the NBA court.


Babe Zaharias- She has won 41 LPGA events and 11 majors, but also won 3 Gold Medals in track and field. She was also a star basketball player.

John Daly- He was named a member of John Madden's All-Madden team after kicking a 35-yard barefooted field goal during a segment before Monday Night Football in 1992.


Lionel Conacher- He was named Canada's greatest male athlete for the first half of the 20th century for excelling in hockey, lacrosse, Canadian football, baseball, boxing, and wrestling. Wow, that was a mouthfull!

So, that's it for now. Stay tuned for the next and final article in this three part series.
