Mark Hendrickson: From the Hardwood to the Diamond (NBA & MLB Player)
Not In My House (A Basketball Podcast)
Mark Hendrickson is on the Podcast today and there just won’t be another episode quite like this one. This is one of those low-key stories that isn’t talked about nearly enough. When you look at the list of guys who have played four years in both the NBA and the MLB, Hendrickson is the only name on that list. The story almost doesn't seem real, so we had to track down Mark and actually hear this one for ourselves. After a successful baseball and basketball career at Washington State University, Hendrickson chose basketball and was drafted 31st overall by the Philadelphia 76ers in the 1996 NBA Draft, which is arguably the greatest draft of all time. He played four years in the NBA with four different teams before he elected to switch professional careers to a league in which he was drafted for six separate times. He went on to play ten seasons in the MLB, and his success on the field led most of the basketball world to somehow forget all about him. Hendrickson's story of transitioning from the NBA to the MLB is one that may never be duplicated again, and we can’t thank him enough for sharing his experiences with us. We learned so much, but we also heard plenty of hilarious stories between his NBA and MLB lifestyle. Of course we are in awe of his athletic talents, but honestly we are even more impressed with the kindness Mark showed us and we really appreciate his time and the stories he shared today.Thank you Mark!
