Los Angeles Dodgers Draft Gaels Guard Mickey McConnell
Despite not having played baseball in four years, Gaels senior guard Mickey McConnell was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 31st round as the 944th overall pick in the third day of the 2011 MLB First Year Player Draft. McConnell, however, has no plans of making a career change just yet, as he has several work outs with NBA teams lined up including two next week with the Golden State Warriors and the Sacramento Kings. He does come from a baseball family as his older brother Matt was selected by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 36th round of the 2009 MLB Draft.
