I should clarify what I consider to be professional. I don't put minor league baseball here,I'm thinking of the highest level per sport.

There were athletes who played professionally in baseball & soccer. I know there were guys who played internationally in basketball but i am not sure about NBA, maybe some of the older guys did but not sure. There were some softballers who played professionally and alot of baseballers to play minor leagues.

Minor leagues are professional leagues too. Look at the number of football guys who have played pro ball in Canada, arena etc. Those leagues are not the NFL but they are the Pro's.

Let me re-type , I got interupted and hurried. I believe the Reushel(sp) brothers both played for the Cubs and other major league teams. Rick being the most successfull.He might have even pitched in a few World Series games.

I realize minor league baseball and arena league are technically professional, I just wanted to ask about athletes who reached the highest level offered in their respective sports.It seems I remember a soccer player or two who played in the MISL- maybe I'm wrong. There's got to be more than NFL and the Reushels!
