How to Become a First Round Pick


Listen. I’m not going to pretend I’m OMDQ up in this bitch. My research skills are mediocre at best. But I did spend five minutes making hashmarks on a piece of paper just to satisfy my own curiosity (look out, Baseball America!) Here’s a breakdown showing where our first-round MLB draftees last practiced their trade.

College – 13

High School – 16

Independent Ball – 1

My own home team, the Kansas City Royals, took the lone flyer on an Indie guy, drafting Aaron Crow. For what it’s worth, Crow was drafted last year by the Nats, and went to Indie ball because he didn’t like the pace of negotiations with Washington. So, he’s like better than you’d think, eh?
