Deion Sanders is known for being the greatest cornerback in NFL history and he’s as recognizable as ever in his dual role as the head football coach at Jackson State and brand ambassador for HBCU football.
The Gen Xers might not know that Sanders was also a very good MLB player who spent nine seasons with the Cincy Reds, ATL Braves, Bronx Bombers and the San Francisco Giants. He hit 14 triples in 1992 and even stole 56 bases in 1997, while also winning Super Bowls as the supreme player at his position in the NFL. Prime is undoubtedly one of the elite two-sport athletes in American history.
Mark Gray, MLBbro.com’s Assistant Managing Editor, caught up with Coach Prime in the middle of a Spring football season and had him talking baseball.
