Quarterbacks Have A Rich History In MLB

Hueytown (Ala.) outfielder Jameis Winston is just the latest in a long line of quarterbacks with ties to baseball. Some of them (like Bubba Starling) decided to play baseball instead of football, some of them (like Tom Brady) turned down a shot at pro baseball to play football and some of them (like Drew Henson) played both sports professionally. . .
