The Rifleman, Chuck Connors, is considered one of an elite group a dozen athletes who played both major-league baseball and in the National Basketball Association. Mark Hendri…ckson was the most recent addition to this list, when he pitched for Toronto in 2002. The others are Danny Ainge, Frank Baumholtz, Gene Conley, Dave DeBusschere, Dick Groat, Steve Hamilton, Cotton Nash, Ron Reed, Dick Ricketts and Howie Schultz. However, this is considered by some to be an artificial exclusivity, by defining professional basketball as only teams in the NBA or its forerunners, the National Basketball League (1937-1949) and the Basketball Association of America (1946-1949) when they merged to form the National Basketball Association. This excludes some baseball players that played pro basketball with teams in the ABL. According to Ted Brock's research in Total Basketball, another dozen major-league ballplayers logged minutes in both sports, including Lou Boudreau, George Crowe, Irv Noren and Del Rice. Others, such as Hank Biasetti, played in the ABL.
