Bo Jackson's scouting report


Tony-OH

Recommended Posts

It was in fourth grade that I brought a baseball bat to school for picture day. I thought about doing the Bo pose with the bat (you know the one), but I don't think they ended up letting me, if I recall correctly. Sometimes hard to believe that was over 20 years ago. When he got injured, I didn't think the comeback would work, even though I really wanted it to, at least for baseball.

Weird that his running speed is only 7. What does a guy have to do for an 8?

That is to to be a mistake on the scouts part. NO way this guy was not an 8. He ran for over 200 yards in a game. He ran for like 1600 yards in only ten games starting. He was freakish at football.

Actually I didn't recall that. I do now, but didn't then. Maybe he improved from when the scout graded him?

Perhaps, but more likely the scout just missed the grade. Jackson was an elite burner. Keep in mind, there was almost no minor league developmental time for Jackson. He started in Double-A and was called-up to Kansas City within a half a season.
