Bo Jackson gives history lesson on his sports career to Adam LaRoche’s son (Video)
Bo Jackson was a guest instructor at Chicago White Sox spring training, and not only did he dispense valuable advice to the players, but he also gave out free history lessons.
Bo was mic’d up and in this clip can be seen talking with Drake LaRoche, who is the 13-year-old son of Sox first baseman/DH Adam LaRoche. At first Bo patiently takes the young LaRoche through his baseball-playing career, and then he eventually let’s on to the youngster that he was a Pro Bowler in football and All-Star in baseball.
Little LaRoche was pretty clueless about Bo’s athletic prowess — you know, that Bo is pretty much the greatest athlete to walk the planet (and this scouting report proves it) — and kept getting his hat lid slapped by Bo as a result. I wonder how inadequate Adam must feel about the lack of sports education he’s giving his son in light of that video.
