Strange Sports Facts Saturday

Saturday in late October means that it is Halloween weekend.  I was hoping to find some Halloween related sports facts, but they are apparently impossible to track down.  Anyways, enjoy those facts that I did find.

Deion Sanders is the only professional athlete to ever play for championship in two different sports.  Baseball, with the Braves, and Football, with the Cowboys, 49ers, and Falcons.

Don Baylor is the only player in MLB history to play in three straight World Series for three separate teams (Boston 1986, Minnesota 1987, Oakland 1988).

The most dangerous sport in high school is not football, basketball, baseball or even badminton… It is cheerleading.  While I may contest that cheerleading is not really a sport, I will admit that the results found in the New York Times a few years ago is rather interesting.
