    Awesome stuff!
    UPDATE: CBS' C. Trent Rosecrans notes that the Rangers may have started a trend. In the 40th round, the Houston Astros selected San Jacinto College reliever Buddy Lamothe, who had a 0.86 ERA before being paralyzed in a recreational accident.

    Terrible to see their careers cut short, but nice to hear they got a little recognition.
