Deion Sanders Reveals Third Professional Sport He Could've Played After NFL, MLB (Exclusive)
The iconic multi-sport hero, who famously played professionally in the NFL and MLB at the same time and most memorably dressed up for both games on the same day, revealed to PEOPLE the third sport he believes he could've gone pro in back in the day.
Sanders, 55, tells PEOPLE exclusively that it will "most definitely" be "bass fishing."With Sanders' professional track record in the NFL and MLB, it's difficult to rule him out!Sanders played 14 NFL seasons with five different clubs,
including the Atlanta Falcons, San Francisco 49ers, Dallas Cowboys, Washington Redskins, and Baltimore Ravens.
He was an eight-time Pro Bowler, nine-time All-Pro, and two-time Super Bowl champion, to name a few of his accomplishments.
Sanders, nicknamed "Prime Time," also played nine seasons in Major League Baseball for four different teams: the New York Yankees, Atlanta Braves, Cincinnati Reds,
and San Francisco Giants. In addition to his two Super Bowl victories, he played in the World Series in 1992, making him the only athlete to have appeared in both sports' championship games.
On October 11, 1992, the pro athlete established his fame by playing for the Atlanta Falcons against the Dolphins in Miami before heading to Pittsburgh to join the Atlanta Braves for their National League Championship Series game against the Pirates.
Although he did not play in the latter game, he was the first (and only) person to suit up for two distinct professional sports leagues on the same day, making him one of sports history's most talked-about athletes.
