  4. 1986
    Collegiate football standout Bo Jackson, who will eventually spend four seasons with the Oakland Raiders, signs to play baseball with the Royals, the defending World Champions. The Auburn running back had been drafted first overall in the 1986 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but the Heisman trophy winner turns down the Buccaneers' more lucrative offer when the team refuses to let him play two sports.
