All-true trivia

In 1995, the Montreal Expos' first overall draft pick was Michael Barrett, who has caught 878 games in the major leagues and was an NL Silver Slugger in 2005. Later they took Brian Schneider, currently the starting catcher for the division-leading New York Mets. The third catcher they drafted that year only suited up for the team once.

The Expos had 18th-round draft pick Tom Brady take BP yesterday. Brady, a left-handed-hitting C, is from nearby Serra High School, the same school that produced Barry Bonds and Gregg Jefferies. Jefferies's father coaches there. There's some work to be done getting Brady signed, however. He's signed a letter of intent for a football scholarship at Michigan as a QB. -The Montreal Gazette, June 12, 1995
