"I knew him when..."

Do you guys remember Nathan Johnson from high school? He is a year younger than us. Anyway he was drafted and signed by the Philadelphia Phillies baseball organization this year! He was picked 21st in the 20th round, number 602 overall. He is currently playing for the Batavia Muckdogs minor league team! I can proudly say that I played on the high school team with him for one year!!

Here are some related links:

- his profile from the University of Iowa

- an article and listing of the Big Ten players drafted this year.

- the Phillies' draft listing

- the Muckdogs' roster - click on Nate's name, and you can see his picture in his Muckdogs uniform!

Anyway, I think it's pretty cool, knowing someone who got drafted - we'll have to see if he makes it to the big show!
