With the Ravens and Browns squaring off on Thursday Night Football in Baltimore, Primetime decided to return to his baseball roots and take some batting practice hacks with the Orioles.
For those who don't remember, Sanders simultaneously played in Major League Baseball and the National Football League. In 641 career games — for the Yankees, Braves, Reds and Giants — he belted 39 home runs and 168 RBIs with 186 steals.
But the appearance at Camden Yards stems from Sanders' relationship with Orioles manager Buck Showalter, who coached the former outfielder during his time in the Yankees' farm system.
So he strapped up in full uniform and attempted to replicate his magic. After laying down a bunt on the first pitch in batting practice, Sanders delivered a few home runs to show off the power.
The opposing team also enjoyed the moment. Before the game, members of the Blue Jays approached Neon Deion in the Orioles dugout to ask for an autograph. Even at 45, Sanders still has that star power in football and baseball.
