What’s Rob Reading?

Mike Schmidt (MLB.COM)

“Mike Schmidt: The Greatest Draft Pick Ever”
By Tyler Kepner, New York Times

“He went to college hoping to become an architect. He left school, 50 years ago Tuesday, as the best draft pick in the history of Major League Baseball. Mike Schmidt did not see this coming. He picked Ohio University largely because of a drafting class he had taken as a senior at Fairview High School in Dayton. He liked the T-squares and triangles, the pencils and possibilities. It seemed like a dream career. … If an architect’s life seemed fanciful, it was more likely than the path Schmidt took instead. Of the 74,774 selections made in the various iterations of the MLB draft since it began in 1965, Schmidt has done more for the team that drafted him than any other.”
