I think the thread starter was trying to say that Kaepernick is a tremendous athlete (which you can see at QB). About his baseball life-
"He was a two-time all-state baseball player in California and was listed as a draftable prospect on Major League Baseball's website in the class of 2006. He earned Northern California athlete of the week honors as a pitcher. He was reported to throw a 92 mph (148 km/h) fastball as a senior in high school, as reported during Kaepernick's first college football start in 2007 against Boise State He was also a member of the Brewers Grey squad in the 2005 Area Code games. During his senior year, Kaepernick pitched two no-hitters in high school play. He also turned down numerous scholarship offers to play baseball at many notable NCAA programs, instead taking his lone football scholarship offer to play quarterback at Nevada.. In his senior year of high school, Kaepernick had an ERA of 1.265 with 13 starts and 10 complete games. He finished the year with an 11-2 record with 97 strikeouts and 39 walks.
2009 MLB DraftIn the 2009 Major League Baseball Draft, Kaepernick was drafted in the 43rd round by the Chicago Cubs. Kaepernick decided that he wanted to continue to play football at the University of Nevada and chose not to sign with the Cubs."
