Michael Jordan needs no introduction. One of the greatest Basketball players of all-time, everybody knows, who he is. 15 years ago he began his adventure as a Baseball player, which lasted not that long, but still garnered much attention. He arrived for the 1994 Spring Training of the Chicago White Sox and worked as hard as anybody, getting assigned to the Double-A team in Birmingham, batting .202 with 51 RBI, 30 stolen bases and 114 strikeouts in 127 games. He also played in the Arizona Fall League. White Sox and Chicago Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf believes that Jordan would have reached the big leagues without the 1994/1995 player strike.
