Something many people don’t know about Kurt Russell is that he actually wanted to become a professional baseball player. For Kurt acting came easy and while he always had strong talent in the area, it was baseball that was his first true passion.

That would change however when he tore his Rotator cuff in a game and was forced to quit baseball.
