Macho Man's first love was baseball
It sounds funny, but it's true. Pro-wrestling legend, "Macho Man" Randy Savage's first love was the diamond, not the ring. I don't know how his father felt about it, but that's the truth and SI.com has an article about it. I, for one, am glad that Randy didn't end up making it in baseball. Selfishly, I'm glad I got to witness his historic career in the squared circle.
Oddly enough, I learned about his minor league baseball career from my dad, GW. Apparently he worked with someone that dated Randy back when he was still pursuing both careers. Wild, ain't it?
