Michael Jordan's father was murdered when Jordan was about 31 years old. His father had long dreams of his son becoming a major league baseball player. Attempting to purse his father's wishes, Jordan sign to the minor leagues with the Chicago White Sox, that was owned by the Bulls owner as well at the time. Later Jordan played on two other minor teams before returning to Basketball; his true passion.

this question is best answered by watching the ESPN 30 for 30, titled Jordan Rides the Bus. His dad was killed, and his dad dreamed of him being a Baseball player. After his dad died, he felt like basketball was pointless so he went and played baseball. He was pretty good, too.
