Randy Savage The Baseball Player

Adam BernacchioAnalyst IIIMay 23, 2011

The other day, we talked about Randy “Macho Man” Savage the wrestler.

Today, I want to briefly talk about Randy Poffo the baseball player.

Before we knew him as Randy Savage, he was Randy Poffo, an outfielder trying to make the major leagues.

Poffo played four seasons of minor league ball with the St. Louis Cardinals and Cincinnati Reds. The highest level he reached was Single-A back in 1974 with the Reds. His baseball career ended when he suffered a shoulder injury.

Here were his minor league stats:
