Bo Jackson

Joe Maddon is known for his creativity and outside-the-box thinking. That apparently extended to his suggestion for how the Angels use Bo Jackson.

Jackson was a two-way athlete who starred at Auburn in the 1980s and then played in both the NFL and MLB. In his final season in pro baseball, Jackson played left field for the Angels. Maddon was a coach with the Angels then.

He recently told ESPN’s Buster Olney and Matt Vasgersian that he suggested to the Angels that they try using Jackson as a pitcher.

Jackson was an incredible athlete. He had supreme strength and speed, and his throwing arm was incredible.

Given how Jackson could be an All-Star in MLB and Pro Bowler in the NFL, we wouldn’t put it past him to have been able to pitch at a high level too. You should definitely check out this old scouting report of Bo from when he was in college.
