On this day in 1993 one of the biggest baseball stars of the 1990’s and 2000’s was drafted in the MLB Draft. The Seattle Mariners used their #1 overall pick in 1993 to draft Alex Rodriguez. Rodriguez was drafted after his senior year of high school where he played at Westminster Christian High School. He was a highly touted player during high school, hitting .419 over 100 games. He would go on to be the highest paid baseball player at the time when he signed a 10 year $252 million deal with the Texas Rangers in 2000. Rodriguez also became the youngest player to reach 500 career home runs at age 32.
