Tom Brady Celebrates Expos Draft Pick Anniversary In Hilarious Facebook Post

Tom Brady is one of the greatest football players of his generation. But exactly 21 years ago Thursday, the Montreal Expos had different plans for him.

The Expos selected Brady, a high school catcher, in the 18th round of the 1995 MLB Draft. The New England Patriots quarterback never played a game for Montreal — or any professional baseball team, for that matter — but he gave fans a peek of what he might have looked like on the diamond in a hilariously Photoshopped Facebook post.

Fun fact: Two of Brady’s former Patriots teammates also were drafted as baseball players in 1995, with the Cleveland Indians selecting both safety/pitcher Lawyer Milloy (19th round) and quarterback/outfielder Michael Bishop (28th round).
