White Sox legend Bo Jackson: 'Sports always came easy for me'

White Sox legend Bo Jackson sat down with CSN's Chuck Garfien to discuss his baseball childhood and his time with the White Sox.

Jackson, who played baseball and football from 1987-1990, made it look so easy. When asked about his talent on the diamond, he responded by saying he's just a natural.

"Sports always came easy for me and I'm not saying that from a bragging standpoint," said Jackson, "But the first thing I learned how to do when I was a kid - before baseball, way before football, way before any sport - is that I learned how to run and throw a rock better than any kid in my neighborhood."

Jackson played in two seasons for the South Siders in 1991 and 1993.

In 694 career MLB games, Jackson hit 141 home runs, 415 RBI and had a slash line of .250/.309/.474. That's a not a bad career for a guy who juggled two sports at once for four years.

"To make it all the way to the top of that pinnacle, it's something great," said Jackson. "To be rewarded for it, that's even icing on the cake."
