Happy 49th birthday to the greatest basketball player to ever play baseball, Michael Jordan. In 1994, Jordan played Minor League ball for the Double-A Birmingham Barons. His Airness batted .202 with 3 homers, 51 RBIs and 30 steals. The six-time NBA champion played for a guy named Terry Francona, who also knows a thing or two about championship rings.
