Re: Athletes who tried to become enterainers
Although he was a child actor too, I've heard Kurt Russell was a hell of a second baseman before injuries derailed his career.
Russell also had a baseball career (Russell's father had been a baseball player for a while). In the early 1970s, Russell played second base for the minor league franchise of the California Angels (now the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim). He led his league in hitting with a .563 batting average. During a play, he was hit in the shoulder by another player running to second base. The collision tore the rotator cuff in one of Russell's shoulders. The injury forced his retirement from baseball in 1973, and he returned to acting.
