Cotton Nash was an all-time great basketball player for the University of Kentucky, which is saying something.  Playing for the legendary Adolph Rupp, Nash was a three-time All-American and his #44 hangs from the Rupp Arena rafters.

The 6'6" power hitting first baseman was a heckuva baseball player, too.  He was such a gifted athlete that he played in the NBA (with the Los Angeles Lakers and San Francisco Warriors), ABA (Kentucky Colonels) and Major League Baseball (Twins and Chicago White Sox).
