Once upon a time, Tom Brady was a draft pick of the Montreal Expos.
The pitcher who has won seven Super Bowls as a quarterback was actually a draft pick of the team … as a catcher.
And on April Fool’s Day, Brady took to social media to play a prank.
Shortly after Brady graduated from San Mateo’s Junípero Serra High School, pro baseball’s Montreal Expos decided to select the then-17-year-old in the 18th round of the MLB draft. After all, Brady played not only football in high school but also appeared in 61 varsity baseball games. He posted a solid stat line, hitting .331 with eight home runs, 11 doubles and 44 runs. He also was named an all-league catcher as a high school senior.
