Bo knows Anaheim, one more time

Jackson_200 Bo Jackson stole the show in the last All-Star Game in Anaheim, hitting a 448-foot home run off Rick Reuschel -- as the leadoff hitter -- in 1989.

Jackson, who concluded his career with the Angels in 1994, will return to Anaheim for this year's All-Star festivities. He'll play in the celebrity softball game on July 11, two days before the All-Star Game.

Other legends scheduled to play: Ernie Banks, Gary Carter, Rollie Fingers, Chuck Finley, Rich "Goose" Gossage, Fred Lynn, Tim Salmon, Ozzie Smith and Dave Winfield.
