Bo Jackson, Outfielder, Kansas City Royals
One of a handful of athletes to be named an All-Star in two major sports, Vincent Edward “Bo” Jackson was a physical freak on the baseball diamond. When he wasn’t cracking bats over his knee, he was gunning down base runners and scaling walls. As legend has it, the Heisman Trophy winner wasn’t a big fan of lifting weights in the gym, but he could still bench press 350 pounds with ease when called upon. Instead, he kept fit with water aerobics and stretching. Aided by a wildly successful advertising campaign from Nike, Jackson was also known as one of the original cross-trainers. If it wasn’t for a hip injury in 1991, Jackson might’ve claimed a couple of AL MVP trophies too.
