Birmingham Barons legend Michael Jordan was in attendance for Derek Jeter’s Hall of Fame ceremony

By Mike D. Sykes, II

I never really understood the comparisons the kids make between Michael Jordan and LeBron James. They never really made much sense to me.

Mostly because they played two different sports. How are we comparing Cleveland Cavaliers legend, LeBron James, to Birmingham Barons legend , Michael Jordan? That just doesn’t seem right.

The latter made a rare public appearance on Wednesday when he was spotted in Cooperstown to celebrate his buddy, Derek Jeter, who was being inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

He was looking as cool as ever with his shades on and those hoop earrings. Y’all know how Mike does it.

Smooth. Much smoother than his baseball swing, that’s for sure. Although, I will say, batting .202 at 31-years old fresh off of the basketball court really isn’t that bad.

Just had to get a little Michael Jordan praise in there before he actually reads this. I don’t want to end up like LaBradford Smith, of course.

Regardless, this is cool. It’s rare we see Mike out like this. But it’s also just really awesome to see two legendary baseball players supporting one another.
