Weekly Quote

The hardest thing for a great player like MJ is to give the ball up to an inferior player. MJ thinks the odds are better if he just keeps the ball and tries to make something happen rather than give it to a guy where the odds aren’t as good.
— Mike Fratello, former NBA coach

Story of how MJ ended up playing baseball for the Barons. It was 1993 and the Bulls had just won their third straight championship. MJ was exhausted and out of challenges. He felt he had nothing else to prove on the court. His father had tried to get MJ to retire in 1991 after the first championship, so he could give baseball a shot. Then out of nowhere in July 1993 MJ's father was murdered. His body was found floating in a creek in South Carolina after being shot. His red Lexus with license plate "UNC0023" was completely stripped and found in the woods near Fayetteville, N.C. It was an easy decision for MJ. Retire from the NBA, and make an attempt at baseball to honor his late father's wish.

Luckily, Jerry Reinsdorf, the owner of the Bulls, also owns the Chicago White Sox. The Birmingham Barons were a double-A affiliate of the Sox, so MJ made a deal with Reinsdorf to play for the Barons. Fortunately for NBA fans the MLB went on strike in August 1994. With nothing to do because of the baseball lockout MJ decided to visit the Bulls practice facility in Deerfield, IL to see his old teammates (Scottie Pippen & B.J. Armstrong). Phil Jackson let MJ participate in practices for a few weeks and that's when the desire to play the game emerged. Then on March 18, 1995 MJ sent a two-word fax to the media: "I'm back." The rest is history.
