Back in 1994, NBA legend Michael Jordan tried his hand at baseball, and on one day in Wrigley Field, he starred. Here's footage, including an interview with fellow Chicago legend Harry Caray.
Back in 1994, NBA legend Michael Jordan tried his hand at baseball, playing for the Double-A Birmingham Barons (White Sox affiliate).
In true "Just Because" fashion, here's MJ being interviewed by legendary broadcaster Harry Caray in Wrigley Field in 1994.

Jordan would go 2-for-5 with two RBI on the day, though that would mark the highlight of his career as a baseball player. During his one season in Double-A, Jordan hit .202/.289/.266 in 127 games, stealing 30 bases in 48 attempts.
Still, on one April day, the best basketball player of all-time was also a star in Wrigley Field.
