College Football-Baseball Stars Offer Many Surprises

Did you know that NFF College Hall of Fame member and chair of the Bard of Trustees Archie Manning once starred both as a football quarterback and a baseball shortstop at Ole Miss?

And that in 1972 Manning’s UM quarterback successor Norris Weese played the same two positions and led Ole Miss to a 10-2 football mark in 1971 and the Southeastern Conference baseball crown in 1972?

How about the fact that Southern University two-sport star and National Baseball Hall of Fame member Lou Brock was a standout for the Jaguars on the diamond and gridiron?

Yes, these are many of the two-sport stars in both college and later in Major League Baseball, and just a smattering of some of the others (see complete lists below with their colleges and primary Major League teams) are as follows:

1934 World Series standout Eldon Auker, Kansas State – Detroit Tigers; Les Backman, Rose Poly (Ind.) – St. Louis Cardinals; Babe Barna (West Virginia) – Philadelphia A’s; Emile Barnes, Alabama – Cincinnati Reds; Don Baylor, Los Angeles City College – Baltimore; Bob Bescher, Notre Dame, Wittenberg – Cincinnati; Mitchell Boggs, Georgia, Chattanooga – St. Louis; Lou Brock, Southern (La.) – St. Louis Cardinals; Mike Busch, Idaho State – Los Angeles Angels; Bill Carrigan, Holy Cross – Boston Red Sox; Scott Carroll, Purdue, Missouri State – and Chicago White Sox; Joe Carter, Wichita State – Toronto Blue Jays.

Those noting any missing players from the Big 12 Conference all-time MLB alumni listing or the collegiate football-baseball standouts may email additions or corrections to Bo Carter,
