Bo Jackson Explains Who He Is To Adam LaRoche’s Son (Video)
Bo Jackson was one of the most popular athletes of the 1980s. He won the Heisman Trophy in 1985, was named the MLB All-Star Game MVP in 1989, and played in the Pro Bowl in 1990. He even has his own ESPN 30 for 30 documentary. And yet not everyone knows Bo.
Take young Drake LaRoche, son of Chicago White Sox first baseman Adam LaRoche, for example. He has no clue who Bo Jackson is, so Bo filled him in as the two chatted on the field at White Sox spring training in Arizona.
Lucky for us, Bo was mic’d up for the occasion. You can listen to their conversation in the video below:
