Any interesting picks in the lower rounds of the drafts? I stopped watching after the Blue Jays' second pick.
The Jays took Sean Read-Foley 49th
Greg Amsinger said that the Sheffields (Justus and his brother) aren't related to Gary at all. Was he wrong?
Negro Leagues Great: Wild Bill Wright
Sometimes called a dirty ballplayer, Wright could be temperamental and occasionally showed flashes of a mean streak, but in a game in Mexico in 1950 these attributes probably saved the life of his teammate Rufus Lewis. After Lewis had hit Lorenzo Cabrera with a pitched ball, the batter rushed to the mound with a bat and knocked Lewis unconscious. While Cabrera stood over the fallen pitcher with his bat raised to hit him again, Wright came out of his dugout with a bat to protect Lewis and struck Cabrera first, rendering him unconscious. Had Wright not stepped in when he did, Lewis may have been killed.
