All Things Bubba

Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?

Ten years ago today...

...Bubba Crosby became a pro baseball player, when he signed with the Dodgers. He was a first round draft pick (number 23 overall), and got a million bucks for signing on the dotted line. He was seen as a five-tool player, and many were surprised he fell as low as he did. Baseball America picked him as the 12th best prospect in the nation, the 6th best college prospect, and the #1 college outfielder.

Ten years later, he's apparently out of baseball. I suppose it shouldn't be a total shock. With the all-out way he plays, you had to figure injuries might be an issue. Still...I bet he never imagined it would end like this.

At least he made it to the big leagues. Many of his peers did not.
