Rangers Make Strong Draft Choices

I don't blog about professional baseball very often...actually this may be my first one ever.  But I thought this story was worth it.  The Texas Rangers drafted a baseball player from the University of Georgia who was paralyzed in an on-field collision in March.  In the 33rd round, they selected Johnathan Taylor, who is showing improvement in his rehab.  A classy move by the Rangers, who also happened to have drafted with the 37th pick overall, the other player involved in the collision, Johnathan's teammate & closest friend.
Tip of the cap, Rangers.
