For most people there is little choice between boxing or baseball:

Here is a story that aired recently on 790 KABC as part of the Lasorda at His Best series presented by Skechers:

When I was a young player in the Dodger organization and we all reported to Vero Beach, FL for spring training, we must have had well over 700 players.  The end of the line for breakfast in the mornings was blocks away. 

One thing I remember well is we had a free agent show up for camp, and he was a catcher.  He looked pretty good behind the plate, but he didn’t make the club.  I took a long look at this guy and I always remembered him. 

The player was Rocky Marciano, one of the greatest fighters to ever walk into the ring.
