A lot of old baseball scouting reports have been released lately, but the 1985 baseball scouting report on then future two-sport star Bo Jackson was insanely accurate. Dated April 18, 1985, the scouting report on Jackson offered several incredible insights:
• Bo Jackson’s time to first base was 4.1 seconds.
• It called Jackson “the best pure athlete in America today.”
• It noted Jackson doesn’t ever throw full out in pre-game.
• It said that Jackson is playing baseball because he “doesn’t like the thought of getting beat on for a lifetime (football).”
• It noted that in 1985, Jackson “can win the Heisman Trophy,” which he did.
