Bo is the son of four-time MLB All-Star outfielder Dante Bichette, and the younger brother of Dante Bichette Jr.
Bo was taken by the Toronto Blue Jays in the second round of the 2016 amateur draft, their 3rd pick (after T.J. Zeuch and J.B. Woodman) and the 66th pick of the draft.

Bo was named to the United States team for the 2017 Futures Game. He and teammate Vladimir Guerrero Jr., another second-generation player, were the two Blue Jays representatives at the Futures Game. He was again named to the United States team for the 2018 Futures Game, continuing his meteoric ascent through the Blue Jays chain.
