These Guys Were Drafted To Be Pro Baseball Players Straight Out of High School

By Taylor Lang - Jun 10 2016

Can you imagine going straight from high school to the major leagues? For Ian Anderson and Mickey Moniac, this dream has just become a reality.

For the Major League Baseball drafts, the Philadelphia Phillies chose Mickey Moniac and the Atlanta Braves chose Anderson as their number one picks. Moniac was chosen overall number one in the entire draft, with Anderson following as the third overall pick.

Their reactions are priceless!
