Michael Jordan Was Reportedly Plotting Baseball Career After 1992 Finals

Colin Cowherd: “When was the first time you heard Michael say ‘get me in baseball shape.”
Tim Grover: “He would always tell me ‘What’s next?’ and ‘If I came back exactly the same as I came back the previous year I’m not going to be holding this trophy so what do I need to do?’ But after they won the second championship, we were in the locker room celebrating and I said to him ‘I’m going to get to work’ and he whispered in my ear and said ‘BASEBALL.’ I looked at him and I was like ‘baseball??’ and he’s like ‘yeah, baseball.’ So even before they had started preparing for the three-peat he had already mentioned baseball to me. Literally that night I started working on a baseball workout for him and we started right away. We had a baseball workout and we had a basketball workout. This was already something I had knew he was contemplating doing a year before that.” (Full Segment)

Michael Jordan’s former trainer Tim Grover told Colin Cowherd that Jordan first mentioned he was planning to retire from the NBA and play baseball after the Chicago Bulls had won their second NBA championship in June of 1992.

The Bulls had just beaten Clyde Drexler and the Portland Trailblazers in the NBA Finals and the Summer Olympics and ‘Dream Team’ would still await Jordan in the coming weeks. Grover says Jordan told him to start getting a workout plan for him to get in baseball shape literally while they were celebrating in the locker room after Game 6 of the 1992 Finals.
