1962: Bo Jackson, the 1985 Heisman Trophy winner and the first athlete to be named an All-Star in two major American sports, is born in Bessemer, Alabama. Jackson played running back for the NFL's Los Angeles Raiders and left field and designated hitter for the Kansas City Royals, the Chicago White Sox and the California Angels during an eight-year career that spanned from 1986 to 1994. He's seen here in 2002 signing autographs for the crew aboard the amphibious assault ship USS Saipan in Norfolk, Virginia.
