Video: Bo Jackson Throwing Out Mike Gallego in 1993

To suggest that the author has spent nearly two hours of his Thursday night/Friday morning browsing through videos of outfielders recording spectacular assists would be to suggest a true thing.

To suggest that same thing within the vicinity of the author’s wife would be what is known generally as an “exercise in folly.”

That’s fantastic. And he only had one natural hip while throwing him out.

He didn’t even get himself in great position as he caught it. One hand, off to the side, standing upright. It’s like he caught it casually like he didn’t care about throwing, got the runner to go, and then unleashed a rocket.

That looked like it was all arm, didn’t use his legs/hips to generate any power behind the throw. Amazing.

If by gotta love Hawk you mean that he is a buffoon, then yes I would have to agree with you.

I think the best part of the video is the realization of how incredible the 1993 White Sox outfield was.

Bo Jackson, Ellis Burks, and Tim Raines?????

That fist bump would break most people’s hands! I’m sure Rock & Burks were used to it.

I was trying to figure out how Raines got from LF to RF so quickly. Turns out there was pitching change immediately after the double play. Game was played August 31, 1993.

True, but his Five Hour Energy commercials on MLBTV and MiLBTV this season have progressed well beyond nuisance level.

I assumed they were only in the KC market, or for KC games. Are they national?

Yes, annoying and also disheartening. “Oh, Bo,” I said aloud to no one when I saw the first one, “Don’t do this to my memories of you”

I grew up and still live in KC. I remember watching Bo hit a home run in Royals Stadium (now Kauffman Stadium) that landed at the base of the giant scoreboard in center field. Probably a 450 footer – which is long but not outrageous. What I remember though is that it was a line drive that barely cleared the fence and it got out of the park so fast. When he was healthy he was truly a freak of nature and fun to watch. Fond memories of Bo…

A few years after he retired I was working as a waiter when in came George Brett, Bo Jackson, Joe Morgan and John Miller. Brett was a regular at the restaurant and picked up the tab – to say I knew him would be a stretch but it was not the first time I waited on him. Morgan was kind of a prick – probably because I wasn’t paying as much attention to him. Bo and John Miller were very gracious and kindly agreed to sign a napkin for me that I still have saved with all 4 autographs.

First Gags has to put up with Rickey Henderson prancing around the A’s clubhouse again and now this? You are cruel to Mike Gallego, sir. Cruel.

This was a great throw, but wasn’t the one in the 30 for 30 Bo Knows documentary better? When he was on the Royals. Throw was to home.

Harold Reynolds was the victim on that play. Ichiro’s throw to 3B (“Like something out of Star Wars!”) to nail Terrance Long has to rank up there as well. Would love to see some of the others you found, Carson.

I remember watching Bo Jackson catch a ball at the wall in left field, and then throw the ball to home plate on the fly, such that the catcher had to reach above his head to catch it.

One time I seen Bo jump in the stands while catching the baseball and in one motion catch and flip th ball back handed over his shoulder to double up BJ Surhoff at first. It was fuckin superhuman.
