    Bet you guys didn't know this one. He stopped playing baseball in the 8th grade and went of to college to to follow his future in football. After 2 years of playing college a guy by the name of Michael Vick got drafted by the Rockies in 2000 30th round pick without play baseball since 8th grade.... Thats how good of a arm this guy has.. luckly he never played proball...

    Pro Bowlers

    Candinotti and John Burkett both tried professional bowling, but only on the regional level. I remember Burkett bowling in the World's Championship, which is open to all professionals whereas bowlers need to qualify for other tour stops. He didn't do anything good and obviously has never made the TV or even a cut for that matter, but he did bowl professionally, as I'm sure many other baseball players have. There are alot of similarities between bowling and pitching.

    as far as anyone knows that is true - it is possible that it happened earlier and we don't about it

    He was also in the majors, too.

    No one has mentioned Deion Sanders or Brian Jordan yet. Granted, both made it beyond the minors to the majors.
