Carl CrawfordCrawford was a three-sport star at Jefferson Davis High in Houston, with offers to play football and basketball in college. But it was his promise as a baseball star at 9 years old that changed his course.
He had one hit and then another, Crawford's Little League coach, Ray Bourn, told Globe reporter Pete Abraham of the first time he saw Crawford play. I stuck around and kept watching and he had a hit the third time he came up. I loved how he swung the bat. Ill never forget that day.
