Michael Jordan, who hasn't dominated AA the way he did the NBA, isn't ready to end his first baseball season.
Jordan, the seven-time NBA scoring champ who retired from the Chicago Bulls prior to last season, wants to continue playing baseball through the fall, and the Chicago White Sox are trying to give him that chance.The White Sox have requested that the Arizona Fall League allow Jordan to play this fall.
Jordan's first year in pro baseball, largely a struggle, ends Sunday when the Southern League finishes its season. The Arizona league runs from Oct. 6 to Dec. 1.
Each big-league club can submit up to six players, almost all of them from classes AA and AAA. Chicago's list of six submitted last week didn't include Jordan, and the club is petitioning to allow him as a seventh player.
