My coach was telling me about a player he coached before and how the player didn’t sign out of college so he played in another country and ended up in the NY Pen league where a TX scout saw him and eventually he ended up signing a 1 year $10 million contract. The usual preliminary evaluations were due and he was going to get his MRI and the doctor poked his UCL and messed it up…
The bad news… no more baseball.
The good news… $10 million guaranteed.
It was cool that he made big money and never even got drafted.
