Post We have a new favorite American League team

Wednesday June 8, 2011

In the 33rd round of this year’s Major League Baseball draft, the Texas Rangers select

…outfielder Jonathan Taylor of the University of Georgia.

The Rangers had selected Taylor’s Georgia teammate and friend, Zach Cone, during the “Compensation A” portion of the first round. Cone frequently wore Taylor’s #2 following their collision earlier this year which left Taylor paralyzed. It’s a great gesture by Texas to recognize the duo and honor Taylor with a draft pick.
