Few athletes in history have had a career like Deion Sanders. As a student at Florida State University, Sanders made it clear that he was a man of many talents, proving himself adept at football, baseball, and track. It's not incredibly uncommon for college athletes to play in multiple sports, but what certainly is incredibly uncommon is to play more than one sport at the professional level concurrently. That's what Deion Sanders did. He made his MLB debut in 1989, with the New York Yankees—and his NFL debut the same year, with the Atlanta Falcons.
Sanders is best remembered for his sterling NFL career. He played on two Super Bowl championship squads (winning one each with the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys), made eight Pro Bowl appearances, and earned NFL Defensive Player of the Year (1994) honors. All that was enough to launch him into the Football Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2011. His MLB career isn’t anything to sneeze at, either. As a baseball player, he hit his peak in 1992 with the Atlanta Braves, when he led MLB with 14 triples and was part of the team’s World Series squad. He also spent 4 seasons playing for the Cincinnati Reds, and one season with the San Francisco Giants. Sanders remains the only athlete ever to play in the World Series and the Super Bowl.
