ON THIS DATE IN 1993: BO DOESN’T KNOW 1ST BASE


Twenty-four years ago today, the White Sox gave Bo Jackson a look-see at first base in a 6-2 Grapefruit League loss to the Texas Rangers in Port Charlotte, Fla.

Three quick errors may have showed the Sox that the Jackson (@BoJackson) was not cut out for first base.

“I knew I stunk out there but I was having fun,” Jackson said in the Chicago Tribune. “I was lucky to get out of there with three errors.”

Bo never played a regular season game at first base in his eight-year big league career.
