    Yet one more reason to root for a Yankee to strike out.

  • Needs to stick with football. Michael Jordan did not learn his lesson from sticking to basketball.

  • He had a couple of good rips on the 95 mph fastball. Not too shabby for 1st at bat in 7 years.

    His problem isn't a fastball, it's he can't hit the curve, anyone with timing and decent hand eye coordination can hit a fast ball. Go to a batting cage and watch dreaming to be Major Leaguers crush them all day.

    This was Jordan's problem also..(curve) and the sequence of pitches.
    To the post way above that said baseball did not hurt Jordan because he won more titles..
    I disagree because if he had kept playing basketball instead of leaving for almost 2 whole years
    the Bulls would have 8 peated.I seriously believe that with no doubt

    I didn't even know he was doing this or interested in this? Is he trying to make a Major League team? Or he is just doing this for fun in the off season? So he would be like a dual sport star and play both? Like Deion Sanders did for a while.
