There is no shortage of Michael Jordan jerseys in Chicago. The way to stand out from the crowd is to go against the grain and rock a Michael Jordan White Sox #45 jersey. This is my number one Michael Jordan jersey that you could buy and is an absolute gem. Here’s some things about Jordan’s time with the White Sox that you may not know or remember:
- Jerry Reinsdorf continued to honor Jordan’s basketball contract while he was playing baseball (which was $3.85 million).
- Michael Jordan said that he wanted to play baseball to honor his father. His Dad always dreamed of him playing professional baseball. His Dad must have been very disappointed with how MJ’s life turned out with him being a basketball player and all.
- While with the Birmingham Barron’s MJ hit an Adam Dunn-like .202 with 3 dingers, 51 RBI’s, 30 stolen bases, and 11 errors. Those numbers look good enough to be the Cubs everyday leadoff hitter.
Shout out to our boy and White Sox fan Brian Roberts for this find.
